Sixteen-year-old Clayton Newell, a sophomore at Francis Howell North High School, is dead and three other teens seriously injured after the group was allegedly "hill jumping" in a vehicle Monday night along a rural road in St. Charles County.
None of the teens injured in the one-vehicle crash Monday were wearing seat belts, according to the sheriff's department. Moreover, authorities say that initial evidence suggests that drugs may have played a factor in the deadly accident.
But what exactly is hill jumping? For that we turn to KSDK (video below) which last night illustrated the tragedy that took Newell's life by using scenes of the Dukes of Hazzard's orange Dodge Charger -- the "General Lee" -- flying through air.
