    Crash leads to DUI charge

    BRATTLEBORO — A Jacksonville teenager was arrested for crashing his car while driving with seven of his friends early Saturday morning.

    Mike Locascio, 17, was charged with driving under the influence and leaving the scene of a crash.

    Three of the passengers were taken to Brattleboro Memorial Hospital. Two were treated for minor injuries and released while another was transported to Dartmouth Hitchcock Hospital in West Lebanon, N.H. None of the passengers were wearing seat belts, police said.

    Prior to the accident, Locascio and his friends were at a Whitingham party where a fight broke out, according to State Trooper Nader Hashim. One individual used a vehicle as a weapon, struck two victims, and fled the scene, the trooper said. The driver is believed to reside in the Brattleboro area.

    Two other crashes associated with the Whitingham incident are under investigation. Locascio will be arraigned at criminal court in Brattleboro Nov. 20.
