Teen Charged with Manslaughter in Wreck that Killed South Orange Man
Seventeen-year-old driver crashed into another car at the intersection of Parsonage Road and Long Hill Road in Millburn.
A Millburn teenager has been charged with aggravated manslaughter in connection with a Jan. 27 automobile accident that killed a 40-year-old South Orange man.
The teen, whose name has not been released because he is a juvenile, was driving a Jeep Cherokee that crashed into a Nissan Versa driven by 40-year-old Ari Vuotila.
The accident occurred at the intersection of Long Hill Road and Parsonage Road in Millburn.
The 17-year-old turned himself in to the Millburn Police Department on Wednesday, accompanied by his attorney, Michael D'Alessio.
The case will be tried in Family Court, according to Paul Loriquet, a spokesman for the Essex County District Attorney's office. The state is seeking a waiver to have the teenager tried as an adult.
