A packed car driven by a 15-year-old girl struck a tree just outside of Napa on Wednesday night, sending its teenage occupants to the hospital, according to the California Highway Patrol. The girl was driving a 1992 Honda Civic north on Buhman Avenue just south of Congress Valley Road with a total of seven people in the five-seat car, CHP officials said.
She was speeding and lost control of the car on a curve in the road, crashing head-on into a tree, according to the CHP. All of the car’s occupants were transported to Queen of the Valley Medical Center except for the 15-year-old girl, who fled the scene. Three of the car’s occupants — a 19-year-old, a 15-year-old and a 14-year-old, all male residents of Napa — suffered major injuries. No one was arrested in the crash, and alcohol was not a factor, CHP officials said.
