BRUNSWICK — Charges have been filed against two juvenile drivers linked to an October street-racing crash in the city.
Nick Solar, public information officer for the Brunswick Police Department, said a 17-year-old Brunswick boy was charged Friday with one felony count of aggravated assault and misdemeanor counts of street-racing, reckless operation of a vehicle and failure to have a passenger wear a safety belt.
“The aggravated assault charge is based on the injuries to the passenger in the car,” Solar said.
The driver was traveling east at a high rate of speed in a 2003 Mazda Protege. The car veered off the road and struck a tree at 7:58 p.m. Oct. 22 in the 3700 block of Magnolia Drive, Solar said.
A second 17-year-old Brunswick boy also was cited Friday with street-racing prohibited and reckless operation, Solar said. On Oct. 22, the driver was the lone occupant in a 2003 Oldsmobile that did not crash.
The driver of the Protege and his 17-year-old male passenger were taken to Southwest General Hospital in Middleburg Heights, Solar has said.
The Mazda driver was released from the hospital with a broken ankle, and the passenger had a broken hip, police have said.
Solar said the boys haven’t appeared in Medina County Juvenile Court.
