Teen arrested in connection with serious hit-and-run crash


NATICK, Mass. (AP) — A 17-year-old boy who was allegedly under the influence of marijuana was charged Tuesday in connection with a hit-and-run crash in Natick last month that left a married couple out for a walk with serious injuries, authorities said.

The suspect faces several charges including leaving the scene of an accident causing personal injury and operating a vehicle under the influence of drugs causing serious bodily injury, according to a statement from Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan and police Chief James Hicks.

The teen’s name was not made public because of his age. He faces arraignment in juvenile court on Sept. 10.

The teen was behind the wheel of a pickup truck on Aug. 18 that jumped the curb and struck Kimberly Gunner, 51, and her husband, Andrew Colbert, 39, on a sidewalk, pushing them into a wooden fence, authorities said.

Gunner was impaled in the chest by a piece of wood from the fence, and suffered broken legs, her family told the MetroWest Daily News. She remains in the hospital, authorities said Tuesday.

The truck was traced to an address in Holliston. Two other juveniles were in the vehicle at the time of the crash, authorities said.
