One Hays teenager sustained minor injuries to her hand after the vehicle she was riding in with two other teenagers rolled “multiple times” early Wednesday morning.

The accident was reported at 1:12 a.m. on the 1300 block of Spring Hill Road.

According to Ellis County Sheriff Ed Harbin, the driver of the vehicle, the older sister of one of the youth, swerved to miss hitting a deer and lost control of the vehicle.

Other occupants in the car were a 15 year-old female, 14-year-old female and a 14-year-old male.

Harbin urged parents to try to know where their kids are at all times.

“(Parents) can’t be looking over their (children’s) shoulder all the time, but have a talk with your kids because unlike TV and movies, when these kids are out and get in an accident or something, it could (affect) them forever,” Harbin said.

Harbin said no drugs or alcohol were involved in the accident and no charges have been filed.

    did not have this problem when kids were allowed to drag main. both parents and police knew that was where the kids hung out and it was safe. now kids go to house parties in the country or where ever to get drunk or high and end up getting killed on their way back to town

      I remember my main dragging days. Nobody got hurt and everyone was there.

    And again–hays post gets the details all wrong! It’s too bad people depend on them for the news– don’t ever believe everything they say!

    • Real parent of real teens

      To passin threw…either you’ve never had teenagers or your teens have never made mistakes, kids make dumb choices, we can preach to them about the dangers in life until we are blue in the face. Fact is kids are kids and parents can’t hold their hands every minute of their young lives! Good parents, good kids they just made a bad choice. Thankfully they all survived and walked away from this!!!

        I’m glad you know more than me. Considering I was the driver. I just don’t get how you seem to know more about this than the people who were actually in the accident? You must be some sort of god. You just need to shut your damn mouth already. It’s hard enough for the five of us to deal with going through a traumatic accident, we don’t need low-life’s like you assuming they know what happened. Let us cope with this in peace.

        • Tell the story

          So driver. What happened and why were you out with 15 yr olds? If you want to open your mouth to and be so objective to spectulating tell the real story.

      You have yet to provide any proof that what the article says is incorrect. It looks like the info came from the sheriff so if you have a beef with someone maybe it is him.

  • Hmmmmmmmm

    Which parents let these “young” teenagers hang out in the wee hours of the morning? Nothing good happens after midnight, just glad all are ok.

    I have all of the above and also the ability to parent so that trumps you…

      No, it was actually at the bottom of the hill.

        Haven’t bashed the kids one time and yes I’m glad they all escaped the near miss of a Sasquatch without harm

        I was actually apart of this accident. Your comments are unnecessary and rude. You have no idea what happened. I would appreciate if you would stop with all the comments. The only thing that matters is that everyone is safe. If you don’t believe what we say happened then that is your own problem. For your information there was no alcohol or drugs involved. Enough with the comments, thanks.

      I bet it wouldn’t. Poke poke

      Arguing with a fool just brings you to their level…everybody has an opinion on how to parent kids, it’s a different story when it’s your kid. Love you 5!! So thankful you are all alright!

    Pretty sure if I would’ve been out of the house at that time at THAT age I would’ve been grounded! I was never allowed out past 11pm until I was a Jr/Sr! Times sure have changed…

  • Concerned friend

    There were two 18 year olds that were in charge of them, they were out driving because they were restless sitting at home. yes accidents happen and we are all grateful nothing terrible came out of it but you don’t understand the whole story nor will you. please keep your unwanted comments to yourself. “If you have nothing nice to say don’t say anything at all.”

    • Other parent

      Anonymity with out fear of retribution ah yes the glory of social media. Without that passin threw is nothing. Insulting the parents, listen to the other guy lay off dbag

    U-h-h-h—-60s child: I dragged Main back in the 60’s and we usually had a 6 pack of Coors in the trunk. Give up the mud-slinging, everyone. The last time I looked, everyone has done things they wished they hadn’t…..who are you all to judge?? Be grateful nothing worse happened!
