No Charges Yet Against Teen Driver After Two Women Hit In Lowell

LOWELL (CBS) – Two women are still in the hospital and no charges have been filed yet against the driver accused of putting them there over the weekend.

WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Ben Parker reports

Lowell police say a 17-year-old girl was driving a Honda on Mammoth Road Sunday afternoon when she struck a woman as she was crossing the street.

The teen did not stop, according to investigators, and about 20-to-30 feet down the road, she crossed lanes and struck another woman who was getting into her parked car.

The first victim, a 46-year-old woman, remains in critical condition at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston.

The second victim, a 22-year-old woman, is in serious condition at Lowell General Hospital.

The teen driver and one of the three passengers in her car were treated at Lowell General for minor injuries and released.

“The operator of the Honda has not yet received any citations,” Lowell Police Captain Randall Humphrey told WBZ NewsRadio 1030 Monday, adding that the investigation is far from over.

Reconstruction specialists are interviewing potential witnesses. They may be done by end of the week.

    Leaving the scene of an accident that caused bodilty harm (first woman hit) would be a start. Maybe they can’t identify her (illegal) or maybe she has friends in high places (politically connected). Usually charges are upgraded when there is more evidence but to not charge her of anything doesn’t pass the sniff test.
