Two teens involved in street race, leads to car crash in Oneida County

A roll-over car accident that occurred Sunday night, has been determined the result of a street race involving two teenagers.

According to the New Hartford Police Department, the 16-year-old and 17-year-old males drove to Mohawk Street at Higby Road where they lined their cars up next to each other then raced down the road.

Police say the 17-year-old went to pass the other teen when he slid sideways across both lanes and drove into a ditch. The teen then drove back onto the road and rolled over at least twice before it came to a stop on its roof off the side of the road.

The 17-year-old and his 16-year-old female passenger were taken to St. Lukeâ??s Hospital where they were treated for minor injuries, according to authorities.

Both drivers were issued multiple summonses and are scheduled to answer the charges in New Hartford Town Court on October 10.
