MILWAUKEE - A 13-year-old girl could find out Friday if she will face a trial in an adult court for a hit-and-run crash that killed a man.

The teenager was street-racing in a stolen car at the time.

She already faces four charges as an adult for hitting and killing an innocent bicycle rider, but a judge could rule that her case will be tried in children's court.

Milwaukee Police say she was racing against friends in another stolen car when she struck and killed Ronald Forbes.

The crash happened near the corner of North 65th Street and West Hampton Avenue back in August.

According to court documents, the teenager admits to driving about 80 miles per hour when she heard a loud bump.

A judge ruled that she is competent to continue with these court proceedings.

The teenager remained behind bars in the juvenile detention center Friday morning before the 8:45 a.m. court hearing.
