An Unlicensed, Uninsured Teen Hit A Moose With A Cadillac

Illustration for article titled An Unlicensed, Uninsured Teen Hit A Moose With A Cadillac

An unlicensed Montana teen was going 100 miles per hour when he reportedly hit a moose in Idaho's Silver Valley yesterday. To make matters worse, his whole family was in the car with him: two five-year-olds and three adults with suspended licenses who were all riding in the backseat.


It gets worse.

The whole thing was utterly ridiculous, the kind of stuff you can't make up. The moose was decapitated, and when its head came off, it flew into the car and head-butted one of the five-year-olds. The child suffered a fractured skull and had to have a plate put in at the hospital.


Not disgusted enough? The driver's guardian is on parole and wasn't supposed to leave the state. The Cadillac, which was pretty much destroyed in the crash, wasn't insured, so paying for the all of the medical and legal fees will most likely be challenging. Ryan Comesatnight, the car's 14-year-old driver, faces charges for driving without a license. The rest seems to be punishment enough.

The group had made it nearly 300 miles from Great Falls, Mont. when the crash happened. They were almost at their destination: the Coeur d'Alene Casino. What a disaster.

Montana license plates start with a number that signifies the county where the car is registered. It's not super clear what the first number is, but it's either a 1 or a 7.

7 would be Silver Bow County, likely the city of Butte. (long u)

1 would be Flathead Country, likely the city of Kalispell.

Either way, I'm not surprised.
