The siblings were getting ice cream in south Minneapolis when Ross blew through a red light and hit them in a crosswalk on Lake Street and 17th Avenue South.

Jacob flew through a glass window and broke his back. Cecilia suffered a major brain injury. Both spent months recovering.

Ross will be sentenced in September.
