The authorities claimed that the Jeep rolled, trapping the boy and his 80 year old passenger for an undisclosed amount of time. The passenger reportedly sustained serious injuries, while the boy was unhurt. After the accident, his mother required her family to make a pact that nobody would call or text while operating a vehicle, fearing the dangers that accompany distracted driving.
