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!
