Probe Shows Teen Was Drunk Prior To Deadly Crash
Three Glastonbury teens are being cited for their alleged roles in the death of a 17-year-old girl in a fatal motor vehicle crash this past summer.
Meantime, police say Jane Modlesky had a blood-alcohol count of .27, nearly 13 times the legal limit for someone her age.
Police say the three, all 17, have been cited for a variety of offenses including reckless endangerment, operation of a motor vehicle between 11 p.m. and 5 a.m., and violation of passenger restrictions.
A fourth teen in the car that night was not charged.
According to police, the three had driven a vehicle the night, getting out at various points before Modlesky finally took control of Honda Pilot.
The vehicle was registered to the parent of a friend, according to police.
Investigators say the trio knew Modlesky was highly intoxicated prior to leaving the roadway on Woodhaven Road, and hitting a tree which caused her death.
Names of those involved were not released due to their ages.
All will answer charges in juvenile court.
