The small car was alone on the long highway
dawn was warm and dry.
Nothing seemed wrong maybe their speed
five young people within.
Were they chatting or tired after being out
what happened there’s doubt!
The teenager driving was she being distracted
by her friend beside her?
Causing the car to swerve down into the ditch
through bushes and trees?
Rolling several times then back on the wheels
for answers there’d been appeals!
But only one external witness saw it disappear
as he passed the other way!
Leaving two deceased and three critically hurt
waiting for a survivor to wake.
Hopefully able to solve this dreadful mystery
this was a real perplexity!
No skids marks detected did they fall asleep
three in the back seat.
A factor this was a four seater automobile
also other motorists had said.
That a figure walked in front them at this spot
the police thought it a long shot!
So the wait and anguish goes on for the families
to find out what happened.
As that air of helplessness hovers over the area
and they mourn their kids.
Hoping it will be solved for peace of mind
their children always in their mind.
May they rest in peace.
