15-year-old girl pleads guilty in crash that killed 3 teens on Meadowbrook Parkway

Unlicensed driver agrees to live in supervised home for up to a year and receive counseling


LONG ISLAND — The 15-year-old girl accused in June’s deadly crash on the Meadowbrook Parkway pleaded guilty family court Wednesday. The unlicensed driver pleaded guilty to manslaughter.

The defendant also agreed to live at a supervised home for girls for up to a year. She will also attend class and get counseling.

FiOS1 News is not releasing the teen’s name because she is a minor.

Authorities say a car full of teens lost control, and flipped several times near Exit M9 on the parkway, leaving three young people dead. Nine teens from Uniondale, ages 13 to 17, and a baby got into the car and according to a friend, were headed to the beach.

No one in the car had a license.

Authorities say the 15-year-old driver lost control, killing 16-year-old Herbert Leo Aviles Maravilla, 15-year-old Marlon Carabajal and 13-year-old David Sanchez. The three victims were the only ones in the car not wearing seat belts and were ejected from the car.

The car involved in the crash was reported stolen from Carabajal's driveway the day before.

The judge said she wants the young girl to get the services so that she can become a productive member of society. Her brother was one of the victims in the crash, and the baby in the car is hers. That baby will be in the grandmother’s custody.
