(INDIANAPOLIS) - Charges have been filed against a 16-year old involved in a fatal crash that killed his 14-year old friend last weekend.

The 16-year old driver has been charged with OWI causing death and OWI causing serious bodily injury in juvenile court. However, Marion County Prosecutor Carl Brizzi is asking the case be moved to adult court.

There is no word on when that decision will be made. The early Sunday morning crash near Geist Reservoir killed 14-year old Chris Baugh and injured 21-year old Joshua Stone and 19-year old Ricardo Tavera.

Police say the driver admitted to drinking seven shots of vodka and smoking marijuana prior to the crash.

Toxicology test results are not expected for a few weeks.
