INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - A man has been convicted of criminal recklessness and other charges in a 2017 highway rollover crash that killed two Indianapolis teenagers.

The Marion County prosecutor's office says 29-year-old Daniel Cannon is awaiting sentencing Dec. 21 after being convicted this week.

Prosecutors say he engaged in aggressive driving. The other car's crash killed 17-year-old Taylor Parsons and 18-year-old Brandon Gross and severely injured three others.

Defense lawyer Denise Turner tells The Indianapolis Star an appeal is planned.

Prosecutors say Cannon and the victims' car were traveling in April 2017 along Interstate 70 in Indianapolis. Witnesses reported a car chasing the victims' car, possibly at speeds exceeding 100 mph (161 kph).

Authorities say an incident at a park sparked the chase. Cannon told investigators he saw the crash but drove away.
