Motor Vehicle Accident Rollover Junior Operator

On June 22nd at 2:10AM we received 911 calls for a rollover accident on Sherburne Avenue near #103.  Officers arrived and found a 2000 BMW 328CI on its roof in the driveway of #103 Sherburne Ave.


Investigation revealed that the juvenile operator, 16yr old male from Lowell was operating at a high rate of speed and failed to negotiate the left hand turn heading south after Butterfield Road and impacted Pole #44, drove over a rock wall, then a fence and then rolled over onto its roof, nearly striking other cars in the driveway and the home at #103 Sherburne Ave.


The operator and other juvenile passengers were treated at the scene for non life threatening injuries and transported to Lowell General Hospital.  The passengers were all from Lowell as well, 15 year old female, 14yr old male and 13yr old female.


The operator will be summoned to court for 1. operating after hours as a juvenile, 2. junior operator passenger restrictions, and 3. operating a motor vehicle as to endanger.
