After that, Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan and Medford Police Chief Leo Sacco said the teen continued to travel on Spring Street where he then hit a man and woman who were walking a dog.

“I heard the engine rev as it got closer to the corner and that’s when I heard the impact,” said Mike Corrado, an employee at Ronny's Place. "First thing I saw was a man on the ground asking to call 911 as soon as we could. And I saw what looked like a dog on its side. It didn’t seem to be moving. I saw a woman on the ground rolling around on the ground looking like she was in terrible pain.”

The dog was killed, and the two victims were taken to a hospital.

“I’m shaken more than anything because it could have been me going out there to do a delivery or grab something, it could have been anyone," Corrado said.

The teen eventually stopped after crashing into a Citizen’s Bank near Yeoman’s Avenue and was taken into custody by police.

The driver's identity has not been released because of his age, according to police.
