State Police report a Dorchester man and a female teen racing another car on 128 north in Westwood suffered serious injuries when they were ejected from their Hyundai Elantra after crashing into a third car around 5 a.m.
State Police report they were racing David Hector, 19, of Norwood, in his Chevy Malibu. Hector was not involved in the crash near University Avenue, but was arrested on charges of operating under the influence of drugs, racing a motor vehicle, negligent operation and marked-lanes violation.
State Police say the Dorchester man, 19, hit a Suzuki SUV, which caused him to lose control of his car, which then rolled over and crashed. Both he and his 17-year-old companion were taken to Boston trauma centers. The driver of the Suzuki SUV they hit was taken to Faulkner Hospital with minor injuries, State Police say.
