TANEYTOWN, Md. - A 17-year old is in critical condition and his friends are lucky to be alive after the car they were riding in crashed into a tree in Taneytown early Sunday morning.
Just before 2 a.m. Carroll County Police were called to the area of Diehl Road and Sells Mill Road for a report of a crash.
A preliminary investigation found that a 16-year-old driver lost control of his 1998 Chevy Cavalier and slammed into a tree. Police said that several teens in the car fled the scene of the crash and turned up later at Carroll Hospital Center with various injuries.
A 17-year-old was more seriously hurt and was taken to Shock Trauma where he remains in critical condition.
Charges are pending against the driver.
Any person with any information about the crash is asked to call the Carroll County Sheriff's Office at 410-386-2900.
