Three trial dates in March were set Thursday for a teenager charged with killing two males in a crash last fall.

The girl, who was 17 at the time of the crash on Oct. 30, 2008, is now 18.

She pleaded not guilty to three charges Thursday in Red Deer youth court.

Trial dates of March 3, 10 and 23 were set for the girl who was charged under the Youth Criminal Justice Act.

A provision in the act prohibits publication of her name.

She faces two counts of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing death and a single count of dangerous driving causing bodily harm.

The 16-year-old youths killed were Colton Lakeman and Ray Schlahs, both of the Sylvan Lake area.

Three young women between the ages of 14 and 18 and a woman in her 60s were also injured in the crash.

Sylvan Lake RCMP were called to the two-vehicle crash at the intersection of Range Road 12 and Hwy 11 in the evening.

Police said the investigation determined that a white car, driven by a 17-year-old female, was travelling southbound on Range Road 12 and entered Hwy 11 without stopping at a marked stop sign. Another car, driven by a 64-year-old woman, was travelling westbound on Hwy 11 and collided with the driver’s side of the white car.
