A Hamden teen was arrested Wednesday morning on drunk driving charges after he allegedly hit two cars on Whitney Avenue.
Hamden Police got a report of a rollover on Whitney Avenue near Brooksvale Avenue just before 8 a.m. Wednesday, according to police spokesman Capt. Ronald Smith.
Officers found that the 17-year-old boy, who was driving a Ford northbound on Whitney, crossed the center line and hit a Nissan that was heading south, Smith said. The Nissan rolled onto its side, Smith said, and the driver -- a 28-year-old Milford resident -- was taken to Yale-New Haven Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
After hitting the Nissan, the teen then hit head-on another car, Smith said, driven by a 44-year-old Hamden woman. Both she and her passenger, a 15-year-old, also were taken to Yale-New Haven Hospital with non-life threatening injuries, Smith said.
The Hamden teen, whose identity was not released because of his age, also was taken to the hospital, and his injuries also were not life threatening. He was charged with operating a motor vehicle under the influence and failure to drive right.
He is due to appear in Meriden Superior Court May 4.
