SUMMERVILLE, S.C. — The driver of an all-terrain vehicle that crashed, injuring a Summerville teen last month, faces a criminal charge after investigators determined she had marijuana and prescription drugs in her system at the time of the wreck, police said.

Investigators on Monday arrested the driver, 32-year-old Katrina Elsworth, on a charge of contributing to the delinquency of a minor. She was released on $3,000 bail, Summerville police Capt. Jon Rogers said.

Kayla Beczynski, 15, was left paralyzed May 16 when she and Elsworth were thrown from a fast-moving ATV that crashed in a wooded area near the Sawmill Branch Trail north of Luden Drive. Beczynski was a passenger.
