Authorities have released information on an accident that seriously injured a teenager on the north side of Manchester nearly two weeks ago.

It happened Saturday night, July 20th at the intersection of 180th Avenue and Honey Creek Road. The Delaware County Sheriff’s Office says 19-year old Tristin Kelley of Manchester was driving his car southbound on 180th Avenue when he lost control. His car went into the ditch and struck a tree before rolling onto its top and hitting an electrical box.

The Sheriff’s Office says Kelley had to be extricated from his car. He was transported to Regional Medical Center with what authorities say were serious injuries.

His car was totaled. The electrical box, owned by Windstream Energy, sustained about ten-thousand dollars in damage.

Charges are pending. The accident remains under investigation.
