The injured victim sustained minor injuries and was transported to a local hospital.

The operator and the passenger, also a 17-year-old male, exited the vehicle and ran into the Charles River.

Troopers convinced the suspects to exit the water and placed them under arrest and transported them to the Boston barracks for booking.

The suspect’s names are not being released because they are considered juveniles.
