NORTH WHITEHALL TWP., Pa. -

A Lehigh County teenager is headed to trial facing charges of homicide by vehicle and involuntary manslaughter. 

Courtney Quinn, 19, of Walnutport, Northampton County had her preliminary hearing Tuesday.  All charges were held for court.

Investigators say back in April, she was driving on Route 145 in North Whitehall Township when her car crossed into oncoming traffic and struck another vehicle.

The driver of that car Jennifer Ebert, 65, was killed.

Investigators say Quinn was speeding at the time of the crash.
