MEDFORD (WBZ-AM) -- A 17-year-old has been charged with driving under the influence in a pedestrian crash that left a woman dead and two others injured.

The Middlesex District Attorney's office said the teen struck and killed 64-year-old Judith Moses around 4:49 p.m. Sunday near Spring and Emerald Streets in Medford, before continuing on to strike a 28-year-old woman and 27-year-old man, injuring them and killing their dog.

The driver then crashed into a Citizen's Bank, and was arrested at the scene. A drug recognition expert determined the teen was under the influence of a drug, though the DA's office did not say what drug.

In a release Monday afternoon, Middlesex DA Marian Ryan and Medford Police Chief Leo Sacco Jr. said the teen was charged with operating under the influence, leaving the scene of an accident causing death, operating to endanger, and unlicensed operation.

Medford Mayor Stephanie Muccini Burke tweeted her condolences Sunday, and said additional info would be released as the investigation by the Middlesex DA's office, Medford and State Police continued.

The other two victims suffered serious injuries and are still hospitalized in the Boston area. They have not been identified.

The teen driver was set to be arraigned in Cambridge Juvenile Court later Monday.
