Savannah Nash, 16, Dies During Her First Solo Drive; Believed to Be Texting

Nash, who had recently turned 16, got permission to drive to the store in Harrisonville, Missouri to pick up items for the family dinner. Her vehicle slammed into a tractor-trailer on the way and she died at the scene. The crash may have been caused from texting while driving.
