Police are still investigating the accident that led to 17-year-old Chelsea Lamb being rushed to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center last week. She is now in the ICU after the car losing control of the car she was driving and eventually wrecked. The teen was out driving after 10 p.m. with her friend April Brooke English, 16, to an unknown destination. Neither of the girls was wearing a seat belt and, as a result, were both ejected from the Jeep Lamb was driving.
At this time, English is listed as being in stable condition at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center. Officers have yet to speak with English about the accident, but they believe that the car was traveling about 75 mph in a 55 mph zone when the car accident happened.
