I think other than down pouring rain another factor to the crash could be they were going to fast for weather conditions and they could have been speeding. Reasonable and prudent speed means that not only do you have to obey the speed limit signs that are posed,but you can’t go any faster than than what reasonable and prudent under any conditions. I think the lack of driving experience does play a role they were probably going to fast for the curve because young drivers think there invincible and can go faster than the speed limit. Lastly, 8:30 could have been the time the teens were going to school and they also could have boon running late. This is what I think other factors could have played into the horrible crash.
