It's turning into an awful week for teen drivers in the Catskills.
First, there was the fatal ATV accident on in Palenville on Monday that killed 15-year-old Michael White and 17-year-old Jennifer O'Brien.
Then yesterday, 17-year-old Natalia Gorgen was killed in New Paltz when her Ford Fiesta collided with a tractor-trailer going the opposite direction on Rte. 299. (The Times Herald-Record has the story and gut-wrenching photo gallery of the accident scene.)
And then this morning, Michael Vaughan, another 17-year-old, was killed by a passing car on Rte. 9W in Athens while walking along the roadside with his younger brother. The Daily Mail is reporting that a 22-year-old, Jillian Conway, was behind the wheel of the car that struck Vaughan.
