PROVIDENCE, R.I. — A 14-year-old boy police say stole a van and crashed into another vehicle, killing a 9-year-old girl, is scheduled to appear in court.

The boy, whose name was not made public because he is a juvenile, is expected to appear in Family Court on Monday to face charges including reckless driving, death resulting, and being in possession of a stolen vehicle.

Police say they were chasing the boy at about 3:30 p.m. on Saturday on Route 10 in Providence when he crossed the median and struck a car driven by 29-year-old Stephanie Flynn of Cranston.

Police say Flynn’s daughter, fourth-grader Alexis Silva, died. Flynn, and two other children were seriously injured and remain hospitalized.

The driver of the van also suffered minor injuries and was held in a juvenile detention facility.

    What part of Hangnmmmmm......I pray the families can come to grip with the incident. But stealing is an option of choice and a kid gone wrong...Maybe the parents need to step up to the plate and get some corrections themselves.

    Hang this little POS! What needs to be done is that a portion of anything and everything this kid makes during his entire life has to go to the family of this child and there also should be a minimum amount set as well. If not, he goes to jail, He needs to be reminded of what he did for a very long time. Maybe he should also have to carry a photo of this little girl, make that two photos, one of her smiling and having fun, the other of her in her coffin.
