VERNON TWP., Ohio (WKBN) – A teen was hurt following a crash in Trumbull County early Thursday.
According to troopers, the 17-year-old driver was traveling east on Orangeville-Kinsman Road at about 12:30 a.m. when he lost control and went off the right side of the road. He then overcorrected and veered off the left side, hitting a group of trees.
The teen was thrown from the car. He was taken to Trumbull Regional Medical Center with serious injuries.
Troopers say alcohol could be a factor in the crash, and the teen was not wearing a seatbelt.
