Feedback at 5:00- Teen Driving

Posted: Updated:

Five teens survived after being thrown from a truck in an Ogemaw County crash.

Deputies say the 16-year-old driver lost control on a curve.

The sheriff says it's hard to believe anyone walked away from it.

Officers say all 5 teens were crammed into the cab of the truck.

None of them were wearing seatbelts.

Police say alcohol did play a role in the wreck.

For tonight's "Feedback at 5:00," we asked how you talk to your teens about driving, and if you think driver's education should be a required high school class.
