Police: Pa. girl, 15, drove car in fatal wreck

ERIE, Pa. (AP) — Authorities in northwestern Pennsylvania have identified a boy killed in the crash of a car driven by his underage sister.

The Erie County coroner says 8-year-old Emir Zilkic died Tuesday night in the rollover accident.

Erie police say the victim’s 15-year-old sister was driving the family vehicle when it went out of control on the city’s east side.

State law requires drivers to be 16 to obtain a learner’s permit.
