3 teens injured in crash; 1 flees

A teenage driver fled the scene of a rollover crash that left three other teens with injuries Sunday night, according to the sheriff’s department of Williams County, Ohio.

Dylan Jordan, 17, of Auburn was driving a 2000 Oldsmobile Bravada on a private driveway in Montpelier when the crash occurred about 6:30 p.m. The SUV went into a ditch and overturned, and Jordan left before emergency workers arrived, the sheriff’s department said.

Jordan’s passengers, Connie Roberts, 16, Lita Banks, 16, and an unnamed 13-year-old boy, all from Montpelier, were taken to Montpelier Hospital, the sheriff’s department said. Their conditions were not available Monday. Phone messages left for hospital staff were not returned.

Criminal charges are pending, the sheriff’s department said. Jordan remained at large Monday night.
