Passenger killed

A dead cow, skid marks and car shards are all that remained at the scene of a crash that killed a popular Alberta teen.

WETASKIWIN — A dead cow, skid marks and car shards are all that remained at the scene of a crash that killed a popular Alberta teen.

Jennifer-Lynn Clements, 17, was a passenger in a car that left a highway, skidded through a ditch, smashed through two fences and slammed into a cow and tree near Wetaskiwin around 9:30 p.m. Friday.

The driver, identified by friends as a close friend of the victim, and two other passengers survived.

Friends of Clements say the teens had left a Leduc party just before the crash.

The driver was taken to hospital and two other passengers were treated on scene with non-life-threatening injuries.

No charges have been laid.

Friend Amanda Tobin says Clements wasn’t afraid of anything and “always had something to say.”

Two other girls, Ashleigh MacPhee and Morgan Ferster, say they’ve known Clements for most of their young live.

“It’s a big shock … she didn’t make it to her 18th birthday,” Ferster said.

Brenda McGlarrie, who lives across the road from the tragic crash, said most people speed on the road.
