MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A Twin Cities man will learn his sentence Thursday for slamming into two teenagers with a stolen car last year.

In July, Steven Ross pleaded guilty to crashing into 19-year-old Cecilia Speranzella and her 14-year-old brother, Jacob, last October.

The two were getting ice cream in south Minneapolis when Ross blew through a red light and hit them in a crosswalk. Jacob flew through a glass window and broke his back. Cecilia suffered a major brain injury. Both spent months recovering.

Ross is expected to spend nearly six years behind bars.
