Police Arrest Three 17 Year Old Boys Accused of Not Preventing Jane Modlesky, 17, from Driving Drunk … She was Killed in a Car Crash in Glastonbury, CT
Three teenagers have been arrested for not preventing 17 year old Jane Modlesky, from driving drunk.
NBC Connecticut reports, 5 months after 17 year old Jane Modlesky was killed in a car crash, three 17 year old boys have been arrested for not preventing their friend from driving drunk in Glastonbury, Connecticut. Jane Modlesky, a student at Glastonbury High School, got behind the wheel of her parents 2008 Honda Pilot SUV in July 2013 with a blood alcohol content of an unbelievable .27, more than 13 times the legal limit of .02 for a minor. Sadly and predicatively, Modlesky ended up crashing into a tree and dying. Authorities say say the three teenage boys were aware that Modlesky was “highly intoxicated” but allowed her to drive anyway.
The teenage boy who was initially driving dropped a friend off at a Glastonbury home, police said, then drove to his own house and got out.
Another 16-year boy got behind the wheel and drove to his own house, where he and another teen got out of the car, police said.
Modlesky then got behind the wheel and was killed when she struck a tree half-a-mile away, police said.
Police determined that Modlesky’s blood alcohol content was .27, which was more than 13 times the legal limit of .02 for someone under the age of 21.
Police said the last two teens in the car with Modlesky were well aware that she was “highly intoxicated,” but allowed her to drive anyway.
“They very well knew that she was intoxicated and should not have been driving,” said Agent James Kennedy of the Glastonbury Police Department.
The first teen to drive the car was charged with violation of passenger restrictions and operating a motor vehicle between 11 p.m. and 5 a.m. He is due in court on Dec. 20.
The boy he dropped off was not charged.
The second teen to drive was charged with reckless endangerment in the second degree, violation of passenger restrictions and operating a motor vehicle between 11 p.m. and 5 a.m. He is due in court on Dec. 18.
The other teen was charged with reckless endangerment in the second degree.
So many things could have been done to prevent this senseless death. For starters, parents know where your children are as Modlesky had been at an under age drinking party. Two, what ever happened to looking out for one another? If some one is this falling down drunk, call their parents, call them a cab, do something! A teenager getting yelled out and ground by parents is a lot less then the alternative … Death!

This is another sad case of teens not being monitored by parents. Teens have to be taught to have values that include taking care of themselves, their friends and family.
Instead they have been taught to keep quiet and not be a “fink” by being someone who stops stupid and bad behavior.
Any parent that allows a child to first break the law by driving outside the rules/laws for their state should be fined. That is not to say that someone was able to acquire alcohol and serve it to teens is also contributing to this child’s loss of life.
In this case, the young girl was the only victim, but there could have been others if she struck another vehicle and injured or killed others.
I agree. It is stunning that the 17-year old boys in this case were expected to have the judgment of a reasonable adult. Yet this girls parents had no apparent concern that their young daughter was still out at 5:30 AM after partying. This is outright neglect.
SM: I would think all were at fault, including the minor who was drinking and was killed. What about those who were at the party drinking illegally? What it at a home? How about people there who saw here drunk and let her leave?
Quality parents would never have allowed such an event to take place with alcohol involved.
An all night party indicates the strong possibility that the teens had no adult supervision. Most seventeen year old youths of today have never been made to do the things that build proper judgement.
Where were the girls parents when she didn’t show up by midnight? Invited or not, I and some help would have been at that residence shortly after midnight if she were mine. That help would have probably been the police along with other parents.
Another incident where Glastonbury Police fail! These police have failed the public many times. Letting one of their own kill himself, among many other tragedies! They don’t blame themselves. They don’t hold themselves responsible, however they want to hold children responsible! UNBELIEVABLE!
