Rutland Fatal

A 23-year-old Vermont man is being held on charges stemming from a crash that killed a 17-year-old girl in Rutland.

Police say Alex Spanos of Rutland was inhaling chemicals before his car went off the road Wednesday and into a parked car, pushing it into 17-year-old Carly Ferro, a pedestrian who had just walked out of a store.

Ferro died in the hospital. Her father, who was in parked car, was hospitalized with a head injury.

Spanos pleaded not guilty Friday to manslaughter and other charges for his role in the crash that killed Ferro.
