FRAMINGHAM -
Police are asking for help identifying two victims of a high-speed crash that left at least one man with life-threatening head injuries and a car destroyed.
Police are investigating the unusual circumstances of the accident. So far they don't know who the men are, which of them was driving, or who the car belongs to, said police spokesman Lt. Paul Shastany.
He said two men in their early 20s were driving more than 90 mph north on Concord Street when they turned right and struck a tree near Pond Street yesterday shortly after 2 a.m.
The crash ejected one man from the car and tore apart a 1997 Chrysler Sebring convertible. The car was demolished in the crash.
One man was taken to Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and the other to Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston. The man taken to Beth Israel suffered life-threatening head injuries and was in serious condition, Shastany said.
Police questioned one of the men, who called himself "Al," and that man said he and the other man had been drinking vodka before the crash, Shastany said.
Police don't know who was behind the wheel because the position of the man found inside the car made it unclear whether he was the driver or the passenger. Neither man was wearing a seat belt when the car hit the tree, said Shastany.
Neither man had identification, and the car had no registration or other paperwork.
Police can't determine its current owner based on the vehicle identification number or inspection stickers, said Shastany. The car's Pennsylvania plates belong to a previous owner, while the VIN is linked to a resident of Stoneham, he said.
Anyone with information about the men or the car is asked to leave a message for Officer Robert Tibor at 508-872-1212.

Police identify men in Framingham crash

FRAMINGHAM -

T.J. Hunt, of Westborough, and Allen Bacon, of Framingham, have been identified as the people seriously hurt in a high-speed crash on Concord Street early Friday morning, according to police.
Tattoos led to the identification of Hunt, 19, of 23 Oak St. in Westborough, and Allen Bacon, 21, of 2C Brackett Road in Framingham, police spokesman Lt. Paul Shastany said yesterday morning.
Shastany said the men were driving more than 90 mph north on Concord Street in a stolen car when they turned right and struck a tree near Pond Street Friday just after 2 a.m.
Initially, police could not identify the men or the owner of the 1997 Chrysler Sebring convertible that was destroyed in the crash. However, police officers who responded to the crash and hospital employees noticed the men had tattoos.
Shastany said Hunt has a tattoo on the left side of his neck that reads "Juggalo." Framingham Police searched their internal computer database, which includes identifying marks such as tattoos and scars from people who have been arrested in the past. When they searched for "Juggalo" they found Hunt's information from a July 25 arrest. After contacting Hunt's family Friday afternoon, police were able to confirm it was him.
Hunt was brought to Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston Friday and was in fair condition yesterday afternoon, according to a hospital spokeswoman.
Police said they were able to identify Bacon because he is an "associate" of Hunt's. Although the tattoo on Bacon's arm that says "Stop Snitching" didn't appear in their database, police were able to talk to Bacon's family, who confirmed it was him.
Bacon was brought to Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston. On Friday, police said he suffered life-threatening head injuries, but his condition could not be determined yesterday because that hospital does not release any patient information under the protection of health care privacy laws.
Police questioned one of the men, who called himself "Al," after the crash who said they had been drinking vodka. Police haven't been able to interview the men because of their injuries, but hope to interview one of the men today and the other some time this week, depending on their conditions.
Police still don't know who was driving the car, Shastany said yesterday. Another thing they need to determine is how the men came to be in a stolen car. The Sebring was reported stolen Friday afternoon by its owner, Alonzo's Garage at 175 Franklin St. in Framingham, Shastany said.
Once the investigation is complete, police will determine whether Hunt and Bacon face any charges.
Hunt and Bacon have faced charges together before. Both were arrested July 25 in Framingham, along with a third teen, Stephen Kentel of New Hampshire. They were all charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and breaking and entering into a vehicle after allegedly trying to siphon gas from an SUV and then trying to assault a witness, according to previously published reports.
Hunt was also arrested last October and charged with mayhem and three counts of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon after allegedly being part of a group of five people who police said attacked four others with a baseball bat in Westborough.

Westborough crash victim faces charges in bat beating

WESTBOROUGH -
A high-speed crash that sent a local man to the hospital with serious injuries may delay the impending trial he faces on charges that he helped beat four men with a baseball bat.
T.J. Hunt, 19, of 23 Oak St., was in a stolen 1997 Chrysler Sebring with Allen Bacon, 21, of 2C Brackett Road, Framingham, when it crashed into a tree near Pond Street just after 2 a.m. Friday, police said.
Hunt was taken to Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston following the crash and was listed with fair condition.
Hunt is scheduled to be arraigned in Worcester Superior Court on Nov. 13 on charges that he and four others attacked four others with a baseball bat in Westborough. He is charged with mayhem and three counts of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.
Friday's crash means a decision will have to be made regarding how to proceed with court proceedings if Hunt remains in the hospital.
"They can go to the hospital with the clerk, the judge, court officers, defense attorney and assistant district attorney and do the arraignments there," said Timothy J. Connolly, spokesman for the Worcester District Attorney's office, "or get a continuance for when he's capable of understanding the proceedings against him."
If Hunt is able to be arraigned in his hospital room, it wouldn't be the first time Connolly's encountered such a move.
"It's not common, but it's not uncommon either," Connolly said. "I've probably had about a half dozen of these in the last year and a half or so."
Damien L. Ellslager, 22, and Damalyn S. Ellslager, 21, brother and sister to Paul, 35, and Kenneth, 28, formerly of Westborough, were charged with mayhem and three counts of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon after the beating of a Westborough's Pierre M. Langevin on Oct. 28, 2007.
Langevin was sent to the hospital with severe injuries. According to police, Langevin had been walking with some friends on Cross Street early that morning and passed Paul Ellslager's home.
Langevin was held to the ground by some of the Ellslager siblings as Paul beat him with the baseball bat, police said. His friends were also treated by Westborough paramedics after the fight for minor injuries.
Hunt was indicted along with the Ellslagers last week on multiple charges stemming from the incident.
Hunt's injuries from Friday's crash will not affect court proceedings for the Ellslagers, Connolly said.
