Pierce County juvenile prosecutors are awaiting the results of a Washington State Patrol investigation before deciding whether to file charges against a 17-year-old girl who was driving a car that went out of control last week and crashed, leaving Ashley Magnusson dead.

Deputy prosecutor Fred Wist said Monday troopers must reconstruct the crash, await the results of other tests and do more investigative work before they’ll be ready to forward the case to his office for a charging decision.

The investigation could take as long as two months, Wist said.

The driver, who was taken to the Remann Hall juvenile detention center following the Wedensday night wreck near Eatonville, has been released pending charges, which could include vehicular homicide, Wist told Lights & Sirens.

Ashley (seen here) died of head trauma.
