Teenager Arrested After Fatal Crash

Glastonbury Police have arrested a teenage girl following a fatal car crash last month.

Jane Modlesky, 17, of Glastonbury, was killed when the SUV she was driving hit a tree on Woodhaven Road around 5 a.m on Sunday, July 14 and police had been searching for answers ever since.

Weeks later, the investigation has led police to another 17-year-old who police said threw a house party hours before the crash and served alcohol to minors.

Police said she threw the party when her parents weren’t home and authorities learned about it after Modlesky was killed.

“I saw it start and it woke me up when some cars left,” said Carol Uscinski, who lives on Paxton Way.

She said she heard the party across the street and then saw police there a few days later.

“Two policemen came and they were talking to the two young girls who live there. Then they went into the house,” Uscinski added.

Police have not said if Modlesky was at the party or drinking, but her friends told NBC Connecticut they were all together at the home hours before she died.

Those friends also said the car Modlesky crashed belonged to the owners of the home where the party was thrown.

NBC Connecticut reached out to the family of the teenager who has arrested but received no answer.

The 17-year-old was charged with permitting minors to possess alcohol and she will face a judge on August 20.
