FARMINGTON, Maine (AP) - A 17-year-old Eustis boy police say caused a crash in Farmington that damaged five vehicles and caused thousands of dollars in damage is now facing charges.

Franklin County Sheriff Scott Nichols Sr. tells the Sun Journal the teen is charged with eluding an officer and driving to endanger.

Police last Wednesday received reports about an erratic pickup truck as it travelled from Eustis toward Farmington.

Police say the teen was driving 70 miles per hour in a 30 mph zone.

The driver lost control, struck a fence, a tree, two SUVs and a pickup truck in a parking lot before it rolled over and hit a highway sign that went through the windshield of another car.

The boy was taken to the hospital for medical and psychological evaluations.
