Corning Police: Teen Driver With BAC Of .162% Arrested After Crash That Injured Passengers

Four teenagers were badly hurt in Corning Saturday night when a police chase ended in a crash, according to the Corning Observer. Just after 9PM a Corning Police Officer saw a Toyota Camry nearly collide with another car. He tried to pull over the Toyota, which had been stolen, but it sped away, reaching speeds of at least 100 miles an hour on Toomes Avenue. When the driver tried to turn onto Loleta Avenue, he lost control and crashed into a stand of Eucalyptus Trees at 50 miles an hour. The boys in the car were all between the ages of 14 and 16, and none of them were wearing seatbelts. They were all transported to hospitals with major injuries. The driver’s blood alcohol level tested at .162%, twice the legal limit for adults. He’ll face several felony charges.
