RANGELEY, Maine (AP) - Police say a Massachusetts teenager scheduled to graduate from high school this week remains in critical condition in a Maine hospital after a car crash last weekend.

Rangeley Police Chief Dennis Leahy tells the Sun Journal (https://bit.ly/1hDmSBB ) that 18-year-old Janessa Gordon, of Melrose, Massachusetts was a front-seat passenger in a car that crashed last Sunday. She was not wearing a seat belt.

Leahy says Gordon was one of about 20 seniors from Northeast Metropolitan Regional Vocational School in Wakefield, Massachusetts, attending a pre-graduation celebration in Maine. She’s expected to miss Friday’s graduation.

The chief says the car was driven by a 17-year-old girl who lost control while trying to pass another vehicle at 90 miles per hour. She was charged with driving to endanger.

The crash remains under investigation.
