Police Reveal What Teen Was Doing Before Deadly Crash

Sabrina Almaraz had just gotten her license when she lost control of her car while driving at more than 100 mph and crashed into a tree. She died along with her best friend 16-year-old Kayleigh Woodman who was a passenger in the car.

The official cause of the crash was ruled as excessive speed and driver inexperience.

“The information we pulled from a data-retention box in the vehicle shows the vehicle was traveling at 103 mph,” Calhoun County Sheriff Matt Saxton told Daily Mail. “The primary contributing factor to the accident was high rate of speed combined with an inexperienced driver. But at that rate of speed, I don't know that even an experienced driver would have been able to regain control.”

Almaraz was reportedly wearing a seatbelt, while Woodman was not. The Michigan girls were believed to have left school to go to a fast-food restaurant.

“We have a school liaison officer with Pennfield schools and he will be doing some education with young drivers and (have) casual conversations with young drivers during the school day,” Saxton said.

MailOnline reports that this was the second fatal car in Calhoun County in 2015 with a young driver behind the wheel driving at high speeds.
