WAUSAU, Wis. (AP) - A 17-year-old Wausau girl has been ordered to spend 30 days in juvenile detention for an SUV crash that killed two 12-year-old girls last summer.

WAOW-TV (https://bit.ly/1CW8XAL ) reports the girl was found delinquent on two counts of homicide by negligent operation of a vehicle.

The girl, then 16, was driving an SUV when it went out of control on state Highway 52 last August. Killed were Deserae Landowski of Wausau and Reighlee Stevenson of Oshkosh.

Another passenger suffered permanent nerve damage and has problems walking.

Investigators say the girl did not have a driver’s license when she headed to Eau Claire Dells with nine passengers for a day of swimming.

The girl told the judge she was sorry for what happened. She received the maximum punishment in juvenile court.
