17-year-old driver charged following crash that injured 3

A Pennsylvania teenager was charged with reckless driving for his role in a crash in which he and two others were injured on Sept. 3 in the Town of Mina in Chautauqua County, authorities said.

The identity of the driver, 17, was withheld by the Chautauqua County Sheriff's Office on Monday. He was also charged with 2 counts of endangering the welfare of a child, driving at an unreasonable and imprudent speed and unsafe moving from lane to lane, the Sheriff's Office said.

Deputies determined the driver had been traveling at a very high rate of speed, and lost control of the car on Sulphur Road, the Sheriff's Office said. The driver left the road, and the car flipped onto its side and rolled over multiple times, authorities said. It stopped after hitting a utility pole and was severed in half, according to the Sheriff's Office.

All of those in the vehicle were transported to UPMC Hamot for treatment of injuries, authorities said.
