A 17-year-old has been charged in a Cross Bay Boulevard car crash that left 10 people injured on Friday.

A suspect has been arrested and charged in connection with a high-speed car crash in Broad Channel that left 10 people injured and snarled traffic along Cross Bay Boulevard.

Gurdip Multani, 17, was charged with reckless endangerment, assault and speeding, according to the DA, on Saturday.

He was arraigned the following day with bail set at $25,000.

Multani reportedly lost control of the white Honda he was driving on Cross Bay Boulevard, about a mile from the foot of the Joseph P. Addabbo Bridge, and crashed into two other cars.

According to a DA report, the driver was going more than 100 MPH when he careened over the grassy median before 5 p.m. on Friday, May 10. There were six people in the car, police said, one of whom suffered a broken arm, leg and hip.

Ten people were injured in the crash, with three victims reportedly hospitalized with critical injuries.

Multani’s Honda split in two. Windows in the car were blown out, with parts of the vehicle and personal items scattered along the roadway.

An orange work vest with an MTA logo was draped over the driver seat. A similar vest was folded on the ground near the car’s smashed trunk.

The two other vehicles, a Suzuki SX4 and a Dodge Charger, suffered less damage.

Southbound traffic on Cross Bay at 164th Street in Howard Beach was shut down for hours, Only foot traffic was allowed to cross the bridge. Northbound traffic toward Howard Beach was limited to one lane as drivers passed the crash site.

Multani is due back in court on June 10.
