When McGairk and the 17-year-old got to the Chevrolet Impala near an abandoned fire station on Kimmel Lane in Jefferson Twp. on Oct. 31, they said a red Dodge Charger approached at a fast pace, according to a complaint and affidavit.
An altercation ended with the 17-year-old being struck twice by a vehicle and needing medical attention for several broken bones, according to police and McGairk.
The 17-year-old’s medical condition was stable, according to a Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office sergeant.
