The 16-year old driver and his passenger were traveling too fast on the gravel road which caused the teen to lose control of the vehicle. The vehicle went off the side of the roadway and stopped before rolling.

I'd say these two are very lucky. It looks like it could have been a whole lot worse. Thank goodness the vehicle stopped and did NOT roll.
