A Tewksbury teen sustained life-threatening injuries Saturday night, when the motorcycle he was riding slammed into a utility pole on South Street, near Mollie Drive.
The victim, identified only as a 19-year-old male, was transported my Med-flight to a trauma unit at an unidentified Boston hospital.

No additional vehicles appear to have been involved in the crash.
