18 total passengers, 1 Terrible Accident.

Minn. family in fatal crash was on motorcross trip - Houston Chronicle

Terrible accident, a 17yr old driver and a massive load with 18 passengers. Is that even legal, it appears the passengers were in the trailer during transit? No way I can see 18 people in a box truck.

What a shame. That's a lot of people from one family to have died. I believe from reading it that they were in the motor home and not the trailer that was being towed.

Local news just said 5 dead and 13 injured. About 90 minutes southwest of Kansas City. Still not a lot of detail.

I just saw this on MSN - yes it a shame that many family memebers died.
Prayers to the family.

17 year old driver - if that was the case I can say you wouldnt get me in there.

I have a hard enough time letting any one drive nor less a 17 year old that hasnt had alot of drive time under his belt.

the heading says motorhome but it was a modified box truck with what looks like a 5th wheel triple axle trailer but hard to tell by the wreckage
