    Police: Teen Charged in Fatal Crash Involving Stolen Car

    A Connecticut teenager has been arrested in connection to a high-speed crash involving two stolen cars that killed a 15-year-old girl and critically injured a 13-year-old boy.

    Authorities say a 16-year-old Waterbury boy was driving a stolen car, lost control and crashed into a utility pole on Wednesday morning. The two passengers were ejected from the car.

    The car was then hit by another vehicle police say was stolen from Plymouth, and both drivers allegedly fled the scene in a third vehicle.

    Officials say 15-year-old Sajenae Winfrey was pronounced dead on arrival.

    The other passenger, who remains unidentified, was taken to Connecticut Children's Medical Center.

    The Waterbury driver was arrested Wednesday night and charged with manslaughter, evading responsibility and larceny.

    Police are investigating and say more arrests are expected.
