A 15-year-old girl has been ticketed in the minivan crash that killed a Gurnee teenager and her dog, which was dying of cancer.

The underage driver was cited for improper lane use in the accident last week. Because of her age, Lake County Sheriff's Police are not releasing her name.

Taylor Stinchcomb, 15, died when the van her friend was driving veered off a road and hit a tree near Wildwood.

Stinchcomb had taken off with the dog after learning her family was considering putting the pet down because it had cancer.
