The driver and two passengers escaped with minor injuries after their car left the roadway, struck a guardrail and burst into flames following a July 8 crash on Dutchtown-Zion Road, according to the Montgomery Township Police Department.
The 17-year-old driver, who lives in Pennsylvania, and his two 17-year-old passengers, who live in Hillsborough and Pennington, were able to get out of the 2018 Toyota Camry before it burst into flames after coming to a stop on the guardrail, police said.
Montgomery EMS treated the driver and passengers for minor injuries, while Montgomery Volunteer Fire Co. No. 1 and Montgomery Volunteer Fire Co. No. 2 extinguished the flames.
Unsafe speed was a contributing factor to the crash, and charges are pending against the driver, police said.
