A 15-year-old girl has been charged with involuntary manslaughter and homicide by vehicle in a northwestern Pennsylvania crash that killed an 8-year-old boy and wounded three other kids, but authorities say the case will be handled in juvenile court.

The Erie Times-News reports other charges filed in Erie County include aggravated assault, reckless endangering and accidents involving death or injury while not properly licensed.

Three other kids, a 10-year-old boy and two 14-year-old girls, were also hurt.

District Attorney Jack Daneri said an “exhaustive investigation” including an accident reconstruction and numerous interviews led to the charges.
