Tyngsborough Police and Fire Respond after Teenager is Thrown from Pickup Truck

17-Year-Old Boy Suffers Life-Threatening Injuries

TYNGSBOROUGH — Police Chief Richard D. Howe reports that the Tyngsborough Police and Fire Departments responded after a teenager passenger was thrown from the bed of a pickup truck.

Rescuers responded to the parking lot of Ayotte’s Stateline Smokin’ Joe’s, on the Tyngsborough-Hudson, N.H. border at 9:11 p.m. Upon arrival, police officers, firefighters and medics found a 17-year-old boy from Lowell on the ground suffering from traumatic injuries.

A preliminary investigation indicates that the boy was riding in the bed of a 2000 GMC Senoma compact pickup truck, which was being driven erratically, when he was thrown from the vehicle.

The passenger was taken by ambulance to Lowell General Hospital and transferred via medical helicopter to Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston with serious, life-threatening injuries.

The driver remained at the scene. The driver is identified as a 19-year-old male, also from Lowell. He has been cited for Operating to Endanger and Operating an Unregistered Motor Vehicle.

Tyngsborough Police will also seek to have the Registry of Motor Vehicles declare the driver an “immediate threat” and have his license suspended.

The names of the driver and victim are not being released at this time.

Additional charges may be added. The incident is under investigation by the Tyngsborough Police Department.

Ayotte’s Stateline Smokin’ Joe’s is located in Hudson, N.H., but most of the parking lot is located in Tyngsborough.

Tyngsborough Police Arrest Greater Lowell Tech Student After Threat Made

Threat, Made via Social Media, Determined not to be Credible

 
TYNGSBOROUGH — Police Chief Richard Howe and Superintendent Joe Mastrocola report that the Tyngsborough Police Department arrested a Greater Lowell Tech student this morning after he allegedly made threats over social media to harm others.
The social media threat was determined to not be credible, and police and school officials have determined that there is no danger to the school community. 
15-year-old juvenile male from Lowell is charged with Threatening to Use Dangerous Items.
Late last evening, Greater Lowell Tech administrators were made aware of a post on Snapchat, where a student made a threat to commit an act of violence. There was no direct reference to Greater Lowell Tech, however school officials, following the established protocols and procedures, immediately contacted the Tyngsborough Police Department.
The police department launched an investigation, and school resource officers determined that the post was made by the juvenile suspect. The suspect was identified, located and arrested at school earlier this morning.
Greater Lowell Tech opened without disruption this morning.
The police department has determined there was never any danger or ongoing threat to the school or community. No weapons or other dangerous items were found.
“Community members should be assured that there is no danger to students, faculty or staff at Greater Lowell Tech,” Chief Howe said. “I want to commend the school resource officers who worked on this case and quickly determined the origin of the threatening post.
“I wish to further recognize those who brought this threat to the attention of school administrators. Community members are our eyes and ears, and in this case, a student saw something and said something, contributing to the safety of their school community.”
Added Superintendent Mastrocola: “We would like to thank the Tyngsborough Police Department for their aggressive police work that led them to very quickly determine that the threat was not credible. Through their diligent investigative work, officers and school officials were able to identify the juvenile responsible and hold him accountable for his actions.”
