Teens Charged In Hit-And-Run Crash, Carjacking Try
HANOVER, Md. (AP) — Anne Arundel County Police say two Baltimore teens have been charged in a hit-and-run accident in a stolen car and an attempted carjacking as they fled the crash scene in Hanover.
Police say Gregory Lassiter, 19, crashed the stolen Chevrolet into a Toyota near Arundel Mills Boulevard on Saturday, and then fled with his 15-year-old passenger on foot. The other driver was taken to a local hospital with minor injuries.
The teens jumped into another vehicle and police say they told the driver to take them to the nearest 7-Eleven, but she put her vehicle in park. An off-duty officer detained the teens until on-duty officers arrived.
Police say they determined Lassiter was under the influence of a controlled substance. Both teens face several charges, including auto theft and attempted carjacking.
