THAILAND - A 17-year-old girl involved in a Bangkok expressway crash that killed nine people in a public van and injured several others last December could face another charge - using a cell-phone while driving. 

The teenager is due to hear a decision by prosecutors about charges on June 23.

The girl already faces charges of reckless driving causing death and injury to others, which have been filed in court.

The prosecutor has allegedly found evidence that the accused, who can't be named because she is under 18, was using a cell-phone while driving, and has advised police investigators to file the charge of using a cell-phone while driving also.

For this charge, police could immediately fine the girl if she confesses to the allegation - as with the charge of driving without a licence. However, if the girl did not confess, investigators could pass it to prosecutor for consideration on whether to sue her for the additional charge.
