Teen charged in crash that hurt 8
Prep school grad allegedly dumped passengers in lot
A recent top graduate of St. Thomas Academy is accused of crashing his Mazda head-on into another vehicle in St. Paul, injuring eight people. Officials say he then got out of his car, relieved himself and drove away with three slumped-over passengers...
Montermini is a freshman at Trinity College in Hartford, Conn., and has been writing for his college newspaper. He was recognized last year by the National Merit Scholarship Program as a commended student, was a debate standout and ranked among the top 10 graduates from St. Thomas Academy in Mendota Heights in 2005...
The driver in the car that Montermini originally struck, a 17-year-old woman two months pregnant, and her four passengers were taken to Regions Hospital in St. Paul. Her condition was unknown Tuesday, as were the conditions of a 13-year-old girl and an unidentified male who were in the car.
The two other passengers, Lia Lichttenegger, 21, and Ricky Dixon, 22, were no longer in the hospital Tuesday, officials said.
The three passengers in Montermini's vehicle also were taken to Regions. Brian Fitzpatrick, 18, was listed in critical condition Tuesday and had severe head injuries and chest trauma, the complaint said. His family declined to comment.
I'd say he has a bright future as a Senator from the state of Massachusetts...if the UN doen't snap him up first.
