    June 13, 2012 No comments

    Police arrested a teen who injured herself and three others in a fiery single-car crash and could face charges in juvenile court.

    After the teen was treated, she was arrested on three preliminary charges of criminal recklessness causing serious bodily injury, and one preliminary charge of operating a vehicle having never received a license. The Marion County prosecutor’s office will make the decision on formal charges.

    The crash happened just before noon Tuesday in the 800 block of South Mickley Avenue, near Washington Street and Lynhurst Drive. 

    Witnesses said a 14-year-old girl was driving with three teenage boys in the car when she came up over a hill, lost control and struck a tree, causing the car to burst into flames. 

    The posted speed limit on South Mickley Avenue is 30 mph, but police said the car was traveling at least double that speed before going airborne. 

    When the car burst into flames, residents in the area rushed to help. 

    Police said none of the teens were wearing seat belts.

    All four teens remained hospitalized Tuesday night, but their conditions were not released.
