  • The Milford police have charged a 19-year-old Lincoln resident with helping to cause a life-threatening accident at New Wharf Road that took place on June 2 and left two Magnolia residents with serious injuries.
    David Stover, 19, was allegedly involved in a drag race with a 17-year-old from the Milford area, headed south on Bay Road, when the juvenile, whose name has not been released, lost control of his truck and crossed the highway median. He struck an SUV being driven by Arthur Harrison, 51, of Magnolia, with Reyes Harrison, 57, also of Magnolia, in the passenger seat.
    “We get reports of drag-racing from time to time, but they’re hard to spot,” said Lt. Edward Huey, of the Milford Police Department. “This one, though, that is definitely the picture we’ve gotten.”
    Stover then allegedly fled the scene of the accident. He has been charged with two counts of second-degree vehicular assault, speed exhibition, leaving the scene of an automobile accident, reckless driving and driving with a suspended license.
    The Harrisons were taken to Beebe Medical Center, Arthur with life-threatening injuries and Reyes with serious ones.
    “I believe both of them are both in the hospital…it’s going to be a long road for them,” Huey said.
    The Milford juvenile was charged with two counts of second-degree vehicular assault, one count of speed exhibition and one count of reckless driving. He was released to his parents’ custody pending a future court appearance.
