life snuffed out in a car accident should never happen, regardless of the victim’s age. But one Cape Cod fatal weekend crash that occurred at about 2:20 p.m. on May 26 in Dennis seems like a particularly wrongful death because of the promise of a beautiful life that was cut tragically short.
A 22-year-old college graduate who had landed a prestigious first job and had just graduated the week before was killed when the car in which she was riding in on Route 6 lost control, struck a guardrail and overturned at least twice before short-circuiting her dreams and the dreams of her family.
Preliminary reports did not identify exactly what went wrong, though speed was not initially thought to have played a significant role in the fatal crash. The car was driven by a man — also 22 — who was subsequently said to be in stable condition at a Cape Cod hospital. He has since been released and no further word on his condition was immediately made available.
