Why All the Car Accidents?

Reading the paper today I came across a story about a car accident involving an Orlando man who was driving at more than 100 mph on a suspended license overnight when his vehicle flipped over and struck a utility pole. Due to the high rate of speed that pole broke in half. In fact, it is reported that the impact also brought down an adjacent pole with connecting power lines.
According to law enforcement a 19 year old was driving his car with a couple of his buddies in Orlando on Lake Underhill Road. The teenage driver lost control of his car and swerved into a ditch, causing his car to flip end over end for about 200 feet before striking the utility pole and landing upside down. The young driver was trapped inside.

After the collision, the two passengers were miraculously able to escape from the upturned vehicle and ran for help. According to one of the young men, they tried to convince their friend to slow down. Unfortunately, those requests fell on deaf ears. The driver and one passenger were transported to Orlando Regional Medical Center. The third passenger was taken to Florida Hospital East.

This car accident raises the question: If everyone knows that speed can kill on our roadways, why would anyone risk going over 100 mph? Is it the lack of proper education or lack of supervision? As a father of four I certainly find it disconcerting that the only saving grace in this car accident is that it did not involve more victims or death.
