BOARDMAN, Ohio (WYTV) – An accident at the intersection of Lake Park Road and South Avenue in Boardman closed the road for about an hour on Easter.

Police say a 15-year-old boy was driving a GMC Envoy without a permit around 2 p.m.

With his mother in the passenger seat, he ran a stop sign turning left onto Lake Park Road, according to police. He hit a Ford Fusion, sending a 28-year-old woman to St. Elizabeth’s hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Officers haven’t released any names, but say the 15-year-old is being cited for running the stop sign and driving without a license. The mother is not facing any charges.
