Teen Electrocuted After Mother Crashes Vehicle Into Utility PoleBERTIE COUNTY, NC – A 13-year-old boy was electrocuted after his mother crashed into a utility pole.

Amber Osborne was driving to the Hertford County Recreation Center on Saturday when she ran off the road and struck a utility pole which fell to the ground. There were six other people in her SUV, including her 13-year-old son, Zachary Stoyer. They had been on their way to Stoyer’s basketball game.

Osborne told police that after the crash, she got out of the vehicle and felt a shock in her feet and legs. As she was warning her passengers to stay in the vehicle, her son got out and came into contact with a downed power line.

The poor kid was electrocuted and immediately fell face first onto the ground. Attempts were made to resuscitate the boy, but he was pronounced dead at the hospital.

No one else was injured. Police interviewed Amber at the hospital, but at this time it hasn’t been determined if Amber will face any charges.

We’ve posted a couple stories similar to this one. Last year, two women in Los Angeles were electrocuted while trying to help a crash victim, and a man in Ohio was electrocuted when tried helping someone who had crashed into a utility pole.

    Wow I know she must be dying inside. I hope she has a good network of support.

  • Aussie Sabbath

    Kid should have listened to his mum.

  • Lena60

    I hope they don’t charge this poor woman on top of it.How awful.

  • thebossessecretary

    I guess it was a quick way to go. RIP, Zachary.

  • Kittyskyfish

    Life went from normal to nightmare in a minute. I can’t even imagine what she’s feeling.

  • Aussie Sabbath

    It’ll depend on how she was driving before she crashed. If she was speeding, it could very well be a charge of careless driving resulting in death.

  • Helena Philomena Liebekraft

    How horrible. I don’t even know what to say. Rest in peace, young man.

  • Jessie

    If she was playing around on her phone at the time of the crash, (I see TONS of people doing that with family in the car) then I hope she rots in prison.

  • thinkaboutit75

    My mom always said a hard head carries a soft ass. He should have listened.

  • tkaz

    Why did she get out of the car???? :(

    I quizzed my kids the other day about “what happens if you get inside a refrigerator (trunk/washer/microwave)”? And NOW I have to quiz them on power line safety…..if anything my kids are getting a roundabout education in safety from this site!

    shocking!

  • VenusDoom3

    Ugh, how sad.

  • Buffettgirl

    That’s so sad – he looks like his Mom in that picture… RIP Zachary.

    This is a real, real tough one. What’s really pathetic is that the electric utilities could fix this problem of people getting electrocuted by a downed line but their greed exceeds their humanity and the bottom line, as with most corporations, is their god. Why Congress hasn’t stepped in to force them to is self explanatory and all the more disgusting.

  • cielodrive

    Who knows if she really told him not to get out? I doubt he would get out if she told him it was dangerous.

  • Aussie Sabbath

    It would probably help if she didn’t run into the pole in the first place. Then the lines wouldn’t have been on the ground.

  • Aussie Sabbath

    I dunno, teenage boys don’t have the best listening skills in the world. Plus they think they know better.

    Prayers!!
