Road Rage

On Saturday, a 15-year-old girl was killed in an automobile accident on Interstate I-35E.

Samantha Kelly was a passenger in a Jeep along with her boyfriend, a driver, and several other friends.

The accident is believed to be caused by a possible road-rage incident. The driver of another vehicle tailgated the vehicle carrying the teens and then cut them off quickly when the driver of the Jeep tapped on the breaks.

The Jeep lost control when the driver of the car, described by witnesses as an Audi or Nissan, slammed on the breaks after cutting off the SUV carrying the teenagers.

According to officials, the Jeep rolled about five times and the 15-year-old girl was partially thrown from the car and her boyfriend is now in critical condition at the Gillette Children's Specialty Healthcare in St. Paul.

The officials are now saying that some of the Jeep passengers were not wearing seatbelts.

The police are asking people with any additional information about the accident or the driver to contact them.

This story has been covered multiple times since the accident. The first several articles about the story included details about the accident and the cause of it.

The story covered on June 26th by StarTribune is still focusing on the details of the accident. The story added more information about the passengers of the Jeep and interviewed more people connected to the event.

The story covered by Pioneer Press has changed its angle from the details of the accident to seatbelts usage and safe driving practices for teens. Pioneer Press includes more interviews from people connected to the event and also includes information about seatbelt safety, dangers of rollovers in SUVs, and tips on avoiding road rage.

The StarTribune does not include additional information outside of the accident and seems to be repeating a lot of the information from its previous articles. Pioneer Press seems to have done a greater amount of research on related topics to the accident. However, Pioneer Press misspells names of some of the interviewees and other words.
