A Mattapan resident was arraigned Thursday at Lynn District Court after being charged as the driver in a Marblehead car crash that injured two passengers earlier this month.

Michael W. Johnson, 19, was sent to Middleton House of Correction, with a bail set at $5,000.

Johnson was charged on April 3 with three counts of operating a motor vehicle under the influence of intoxicating alcohol causing serious bodily injury, negligent operation of a motor vehicle, minor in possession of alcohol and operating a motor vehicle with a suspended license.

The crash occurred near 89 Humphrey Street at around 2:30 a.m. last Friday, according to the police log.

Maxwell Hill of Lynn and Cameron Sylvester of Marblehead were also in the vehicle.

Hill and Johnson were extricated, treated at the scene, then transported to Salem Hospital.

Sylvester, who is in high school, had more extensive injuries and was brought to Massachusetts General in Boston.

According to a hospital spokesperson, Sylvester was discharged on Monday April 15.

Johnson will be back in court for a pre-trial hearing on Monday June 3.
