A teen was killed in a car accident just hours after receiving her driver’s license, police in Australia said.
18-year-old Tori Earl was driving a Suzuki Baleno that she bought from her sister.
Earl and her close friend, 19-year-old Kendall Burke, were driving to see Burke’s younger brother. They were going to take him shopping, but they never arrived.
The two teens were killed around 4:00 p.m. on Thursday, when the car was hit by a truck on the New England Highway. They were declared dead at the scene.
Earl’s brother said that she was excited to show everyone that she had gotten her license. She was very proud about her license, and it was the happiest day of her life.
