Teen, 13, charged after wrecking father's vehicle
Troopers have cited a 13-year-old boy after he took his father’s vehicle and crashed into a telephone pole.
The incident occurred around 7:15 a.m. today as a 13 year old Harrington boy was operating a 2006 Toyota 4Runner westbound on Bloomfield Drive, just west of Cloverfield Lane. The vehicle traveled off the north side of the road and into a ditch before the passenger’s side struck a utility pole, sheering it off at the base. The 4Runner continued westbound for a short distance before coming to a stop in the roadway.
The 13 year old was initially transported to Milford Memorial Hospital before being transferred to A.I. DuPont where he is being treated for non-life-threatening injuries. He was cited with Careless Driving, Failure to Remain in a Single Lane, No Insurance in Possession, No Registration in Possession, and Driving Without a Valid License.
