The agency that sells insurance for West Hills is selling a $15,000 vehicle to the family of a teen who died in a fiery crash.
The West Hills Insurance Agency said Monday it is paying the family $15K for the 2014 Toyota Camry, which is equipped with an airbag and carbon fiber brakes, according to the Detroit News.
The teen, who died at age 17, was riding a dirt bike with his friends on May 24, 2014, when they lost control in a parking lot near Westwood and Broadway in Detroit, according the accident report obtained by the Detroit Free Press.
A single tire burned as they were going about 50 mph on Woodward near the intersection of Broadway and Woodward avenues.
The teen died at the scene.
He died on the way to the hospital.
A spokeswoman for the agency said the accident was “very, very tragic” and it was “a horrible accident for our clients and their families.”
She said the agency is investigating the cause of the accident.
The Camry’s owner, Joe Smith, told ABC News the company is aware of the death of a 15-year-old girl who died after an auto accident in Michigan.
