A teenager faces criminal charges in a fatal crash that killed a 17-year-old girl earlier this month in Kansas City, Kan.
The teen, who is under 18 years old, faces involuntary manslaughter and two counts of aggravated battery, the Wyandotte County District Attorney's Office said Friday.
The Office did not name the teen because he is being charged as a juvenile.
Police earlier said a vehicle driven by a teenager was traveling too fast in the area of 67th and Georgia Avenue where the 17-year-old girl stood outside. She was being dropped off by her mother at her father's house.

The girl, Delicia Johnson, was killed. Her mother and the teen driver suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
"She made it home," Delicia's great-aunt Anna Kennybrew-Robinson said. "But she never made it inside."
Delicia was a junior at F.L. Schlagle High School.
The speed limit on North 67th Street is 30 mph as it heads north from Parallel Parkway.
Vehicles traveling the road pass by many residential driveways, Hazel Grove Elementary School and Bethel Free Will Baptist Church.
The road has no shoulders and rises and falls over small hills, creating some visibility problems.
Cars frequently are driven too fast on the road, Delicia's family said.
Jonathan Carter, a spokesman for the Wyandotte County District Attorney's Office, said there is no evidence that indicates the teen driver was impaired.
Generally, Carter said, one can be charged for aggravated battery for speeding or damaging property.
