According to the Cape Cod Times, a Brazilian teen living in Marstons Mills crashed his car into a tree on Race Lane on Saturday, then fled the scene.
The 1994 Mercedes was discovered by Barnstable police, but there was no driver. The car had a smashed windshield and both airbags deflated. The driver, 17-year-old Jean Ikchucki, later returned with his mother to the scene of the car crash.
Police took both people to the Barnstable police station, where they spoke with investigators though a translator. The teen initially told investigators that his mother was driving the car, but they discovered that he had been behind the wheel. Since both mother and son are living in Massachusetts illegally, neither one has a valid Massachusetts driver’s license.
Police gave Ikchucki a criminal citation for operating without a license; however, it is unlucky that he or his mother will be deported as a result of the car crash.
