Accident At Sangertown Mall Damages 6 Vehicles
No injuries were reported this morning when a car driven by a 15 year old Utica girl crashed into at least five other vehicles in the Sangertown Square parking lot.According to New Hartford police, the girl was driving too fast when she lost control of her vehicle and crashed into a car that was driving through the parking lot. She then bounced off the first vehicle before hitting a parked pick-up truck. The pick-up was lifted about four feet into the air.
The force of the crash pushed the pick-up into three other parked vehicles before coming to a stop.
The 15 year old driver had a 14 year old passenger and both reportedly ran from the scene and into the mall. Police say they then got on to a Centro bus and tried to leave the mall when they were caught by Sangertown Mall security officers.
Three of the six vehicles were damaged enough that they had to be towed from the mall.
New Hartford Police say that because of the ages of the two girls, any charges filed will come after an investigation and will be handled by police juvenile aid officers.
