DOYLESTOWN, Pa. -- A southeastern Pennsylvania teenager says he was racing at speeds approaching 150 mph when he crashed with another teenager last March.

Eighteen-year-old John Anton appeared in Bucks County Juvenile Court in Doylestown Friday. He was sentenced to probation.

Mr. Anton was 17 at the time of the March 2 crash on Route 611 in Doylestown, less than a mile from the site where a 9-year-old girl was killed by another street racer months before.

The Intelligencer of Doylestown reports that Anton, now a Penn State student, apologized in court. He has agreed to testify at the upcoming trial of 21-year-old Jeff Bender, who police say was racing Mr. Anton. Their cars collided and Mr. Bender suffered a severe head laceration and gouged skull.
