18-year-old in Fatal Auto Accident

18-year-old Amber Knight was killed in a car accident when the car she was riding in pulled onto the shoulder to make a U-turn in front of an oncoming vehicle. She had been riding in the left back seat of a 1995 Honda, with no seat belt and on the side that took the brunt of the impact. The driver, Benjamin Bartsch, 19 was taken to the hospital and is said to be in critical condition. Two other passengers had serious injuries but were not believed to be in life-threatening conditions. The second driver in the accident, Thomas Cerbo, 29, received minor injuries. Investigators believe the crash was alcohol-related, Officer Burroughs said, but are awaiting toxicology results to verify whether or not alcohol was involved.
