    A baby was killed in this crash in Manchester in September.

    A 17-year-old Manchester girl has been charged in a crash that killed a 5-month-old baby girl and critically injured an 11-month-old child in Manchester in September.

    The two-car crash happened at on  Spencer Street at 1:20 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 5.

    The 17-year-old was charged with second-degree manslaughter and third-degree assault. Her name has not been released because she is a juvenile.

    Authorities said neither driver was injured when the cars collided, but the car carrying the young children rolled over, hit a telephone pole.

    Both children were properly strapped into car seats and had to be extricated.

    The teen turned herself in on Wednesday and will appear in Rockville Juvenile Court.
