April 25 — Three Boston College players were among those charged after an automobile collided with a trolley, according to reports.
Goaltender Parker Milner and defenseman Philip Samuelsson and Patrick Wey face charges of being a minor in possession of alcohol following the crash, TheBostonChannel.com reported.
The three were reported to be among seven in a Jeep Cherokee near midnight Saturday in Brighton, Mass. A trolley operator reported that the car’s driver, 19-year-old Jane Stanton, pulled in front of the trolley and tried to make a U-turn, causing the collision, the website reported.
The trolley operator told police that three of the Jeep’s occupants, including Milner, threw away what looked like alcohol containers before fleeing the scene, according to TheBostonChannel.com. The accident took place at the intersection of South and Commonwealth avenues.
Milner and Wey are 19; Samuelsson is 18. All are freshmen.
Four of those in the Jeep were taken to a hospital for treatment of neck and back injuries, a spokesperson for the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority told The Heights, but their identities were not disclosed.
No one on the trolley was injured.
Samuelsson played in all 42 games in Boston College’s run to a national championship. He scored one goal and added 13 assists.
Milner started 13 of the Eagles’ 42 games but did not appear after allowing five goals to Massachusetts in a 6-5 win in the first game of a Hockey East quarterfinal series. He had a 10-2-1 record, a 2.32 goals-against average and a .909 save percentage.
Wey played in 27 games, recording five assists.
