New Jersey State Police have named the charges against the 17-year-old driver in the fatal May 11 crash in Fredon. It was initially believed that any charges filed against the teen would be kept confidential, due his age and rules governing juveniles but State Police Lt. Ted Schafer told NJ.com the charges earlier today without releasing the driver's name.
The 17-year-old has been charged with aggravated manslaughter, death by auto, assault by auto, and two counts of violating a law intended to protect public heath and safety. He was also issued two summonses for speeding, reckless driving, failure to maintain a lane, failure to keep right, and two summonses for violating the provisions of his state-issued, Graduated Driver License.
