A teenage driver has been indicted on manslaughter charges in a crash near Oakton High School that killed two teenage girls and critically injured a third, officials said.

Commonwealth’s Attorney Steve Descano announced charges Thursday, more than two weeks after the crash.

Usman Shahid, 18, was set to be arraigned in court Thursday on two counts of involuntary manslaughter, Descano said. If convicted, Shadid could face up to 10 years in prison for each charge.

Shahid was speeding at 81 mph when he hit an SUV with the car he was driving, Fairfax County Chief of Police Kevin Davis said at a news conference Thursday, calling it a "tragic scenario."

A Northern Virginia restaurant is raising money for the families of the teen girls who were hit by a speeding car in Oakton, Virginia. Two of the girls died and another girl was critically injured. News4's Paul Wagner reports.

Just before noon on June 7, Shadid was driving a white BMW, Descano said.

The BMW struck an SUV at the intersection of Blake Lane and Five Oaks Road, then slammed into the three girls walking on the sidewalk, according to Descano.

A teen named Katya, her cousin Ada Gabriela and their friend had been walking home from Oakton High School when the BMW hit them.

Ada Gabriela and the cousins' friend died.

Katya suffered life-threatening injuries, and medics rushed her to a hospital.

The driver who hit the girls had just graduated from Oakton High the previous Friday, a law enforcement source told News4

No one at Shahid's home answered the door on Thursday.
