Boy, 3, killed in Md. crash

HANOVER, Md. — Authorities say speed and reckless driving led to a Hanover car crash that killed a 3-year-old boy and injured others.

Anne Arundel County police say a 16-year-old boy was driving a Plymouth Acclaim packed with friends and relatives on Ridge Road about 8 p.m. Wednesday when he crashed into a tree near Furnace Avenue. The toddler was not in a car seat at the time.

The driver was hospitalized in fair condition Thursday. An 18-year-old male who had been in the front seat was in serious condition. An 18-year-old female, who had been holding the child in her lap, was in critical condition. Her 17-year-old sister was in serious condition.

Prosecutors are reviewing the case to determine possible charges. Police say only two people in the car were wearing seatbelts.
