Traveling in a larger vehicle can sometimes give a false sense of security on the road. Sadly, that was not the case for a 15 passenger van on one North Dakota county road. Late one Saturday evening, a total of 13 people were injured when a vehicle turned in front of the van, and the two collided. While -- thankfully -- no fatal injuries were sustained, car accidents like this occur far too often.
When an SUV driven by an 18-year-old made a left turn, it was struck by oncoming traffic, a 15 passenger van driven by another 18-year-old male. The van collided with the front passenger's side of the SUV. To top it off, the van was carrying a total of 12 passengers, all teens ranging in age from 15 up to 20.
