MT. AIRY, N.C. — Mt. Airy Police will issue juvenile petitions charging a 15-year-old driver involved in a police chase and car accident that killed her younger brother in December.

The Mt. Airy News reports that the petitions will involve misdemeanor offenses of vehicular homicide and speeding to elude arrest.

The petitions come at the conclusion of the investigation of the accident that occurred on December 15 on Carter Street in Mount Airy.

A 15-year-old Pilot Mountain girl stole her family’s car and was speeding on U.S. 52, when a police officer tried to pull her over.

She sped out of control, killing her younger brother, the passenger.

The female driver suffered only minor injuries.

The petition does not necessarily mean the case will be taken to court.
