A teenager has been charged after a stolen vehicle crashed north of Cooma.
At about 8.50am yesterday an 18-year-old man was driving a Nissan sedan south along the Monaro Highway, about 7km north of Cooma.
The driver had three passengers all under the age of 17.
The vehicle left the road and rolled.
Emergency services were called and the driver and two of his passengers, were taken to Cooma Hospital and have since been released.
A 14-year-old girl who had also been a passenger was airlifted to Canberra Hospital suffering a spinal fracture.
Further inquiries led police to determine the vehicle had allegedly been stolen from the ACT on Saturday and had been involved in numerous offences between Canberra and Eden since that time.
The 18-year-old driver was arrested and taken to Cooma Police Station where he was charged.
His licence was suspended, he's been given conditional bail and will appear before Cooma Local Court in May.
