West Roxbury teen charged in Arborway crash that injured six

An 18-year-old West Roxbury man will face criminal charges that he allegedly drove up to 80 miles per hour before a Sept. 6 crash on the Arborway in Jamaica Plain that injured him and five other people, including one who is still in a coma and another with life-
altering brain and spine injuries, officials said Wednesday.

Authorities are seeking a criminal complaint against Nikolas Papadopoulos, charging him with negligent operation of a motor vehicle and several civil offenses, including speeding, failing to ensure that two passengers under 16 were wearing seat belts, and unsafely crossing lane markings, authorities said.
