The teen driver of a vehicle involved in a car crash with the Duxbury Fire Chief this week will face charges, according to officials.
Fire officials say a Duxbury Fire Department staff car was badly damaged in a three-car crash on Tremont Street Tuesday morning.
Officials say the crash happened as Fire Chief Kevin Nord was travelling south on Tremont Street, when 18-year-old Brendan Cleveland of Mashpee, travelling north, made an abrupt left turn in front of Chief Nord’s 2008 Chevrolet Tahoe.
After impact, the Tahoe then struck a truck parked at the Bennett’s Store at 136 Tremont Street, causing heavy damage to the Chief’s SUV.
Chief Nord was the only person taken to the hospital, with what Deputy Chief Christopher West described as minor injuries. Chief Nord has since been released and is doing fine.
Cleveland and the occupants of the parked vehicle were uninjured.
Deputy Fire Chief West said the truck is now out of service as the department goes through the insurance process.
Cleveland has been charged with failing to yield the right of way, failing to keep to the right, and operating an uninspected motor vehicle. Officials say the investigation into the crash is still ongoing and more charges may be filed.
