A 20-year-old man has been charged with allowing a 13-year-old boy to drive a car that led to a wreck and serious injuries, police said. 

Logan Kennedy, the husband of a Fort Stewart soldier, was the passenger as the young teenager drove the vehicle in Eagle Creek Mobile Home Park in Hinesville, which led to a wreck and Kennedy being seriously injured, Hinesville police Traffic Accident Investigator Les Patton said Thursday. 

Kennedy is charged with reckless conduct and contributing to the delinquency of a minor, Patton said. 

The accident occurred shortly before 2 p.m. March 29 at the mobile home park on Brantley Drive.

Patton said then that the boy was driving a 2006 Cadillac on one of the roads in the mobile home park. Patton said that, according to a witness, the boy was driving between 20 and 30 mph and, without stopping, drove straight into a parked vehicle, damaging the left rear and continuing on until it struck a tree.

Kennedy underwent surgery for serious injuries to his legs at Memorial University Medical Center in Savannah. Police said the vehicle belonged to Kennedy's brother, and he was borrowing it at the time of the accident.

The teen was treated for minor injuries at Liberty Regional Medical Center.
