Looks like a lot of tragedy has narrowly been avoided due to a fiery car crash caused by a star from Teen Mom 2. Adam Lind, Chelsea Houska's ex-boyfriend, was pulled from his car after an accident moments before the car exploded.
On February 21 in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, Adam was driving a 2001 Corvette Z06 when he crashed into a Lincoln Town Car.
Reportedly, the Lincoln was being driven by an 87-year-old woman with a 94-year-old passenger. Some truly heroic Samaritans were able to pull everyone to safety just seconds before the Corvette exploded. Everyone was taken to a local hospital and treated for "non-life-threatening injuries."
Pretty crazy, right? It doesn't get much scarier (or closer) than that!
Lind, who first appeared on 16 and Pregnant, tried to make it work with Houska throughout several seasons, but now is currently seeing Taylor Halbur. He has a daughter, Paislee, with Halbur. On February 22, Halbur wrote on Twitter: "Sometimes we forget how precious life is.. never take it for granted. It is a fragile thing and we never know what the future holds."
According to a press release from the police, Adam was driving at "a high rate of speed" when he crashed into the Lincoln, then a traffic signal pole, then a fence. Dude is seriously lucky to be alive.
Here's a shot that's reportedly whatever was left of Adam's car:
Criminal charges are pending, and Adam should be thanking his lucky stars that not only were onlookers brave enough to pull him out of his car before it exploded, but that the two elderly people in the other car weren't killed.
If Adam were speeding like it's been reported, he definitely should face charges and be held responsible for his actions. Seems like split seconds made the difference between life and death, and hopefully Adam will be more careful on the road, especially since he has little kids that he needs to take care of.
What sort of punishment should Adam face for this accident?
