LYNN, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Friday morning the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority Transit Police said they responded to a call to the Lynn Bus Garage for a report of an automobile accident.
Officers said that upon arrival they saw two 19-year-old women quickly walking away from the scene of a crash, as a witness yelled to the responding officials that the fleeing teenagers were responsible for the incident.
Police said that investigation showed that one of the women was driving a 1998 Toyota Land Cruiser at a high rate of speed southbound on Western Avenue when she attempted to pass another vehicle, lost control, and careened into the parking lot of the MBTA Lynn Bus Garage. From there the teenagers had crashed into three separate parked and unoccupied vehicles, causing substantial damage, Transit Police said.
Officers also said that they found several unopened alcohol nip bottles in the vehicle, along with a fake identification card that made the driving teenager appear older.
The driver of the Land Cruiser was charged with Operating to Endanger, Speeding, Minor in Possession of Alcohol, and Forging/Falsification of a Driver's License. Police also said that they will push for the teenager's license to be revoked, reasoning that the teenager was a "driving threat" based on the incident.
