An 18-year-old Wilmette resident was charged with underage consumption of alcohol and failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident after a car crash Friday, police said.

The teenager was driving in the 800 block of Brummel Street at 10 p.m. when he lost control of his vehicle and hit two parked cars, which resulted in his vehicle rolling over, Evanston police Cmdr. Joseph Dugan told The Daily in an email. Four vehicles were damaged, including the 18-year-old’s. No one was in the other vehicles.

The teen’s passenger, a 16-year-old from Chicago, had minor injuries and was transported to Presence Saint Francis Hospital, 355 Ridge Ave., and was not charged with anything, Dugan said.

The 18-year-old is scheduled to appear in court April 1.
