A driver of a pickup truck and a 17-year-old Ohio girl are being charged following two weekend car crashes in Girard.

Several people were taken to the hospital after back-to-back incidents on Saturday on West Ridge Road just east of Teller Road.

A 17-year-old Ohio girl is being charged with unsafe lane change after she attempted to make a U-turn and collided with another vehicle, flipping her car on its roof.

Six other juveniles were in the vehicle, according to police.

Moments after the crash, the car was struck by a pickup truck that left the roadway and collided with a large boulder off the side of the road.

The driver, who is being charged with driving without a license, was taken to the hospital with serious injuries.
