Milwaukee Teen In Stolen Vehicle Dies After Causing Crash

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Authorities say a 16-year-old boy who continued to flee Milwaukee police in a stolen vehicle after officers called off the pursuit died in a crash that left five other teens with serious injuries.

Police said officers attempted to stop the vehicle shortly before 9 p.m. Tuesday, when the driver took off and eventually crossed into oncoming traffic. Officers halted the pursuit but the car continued and hit another vehicle head-on at 50 to 60 mph, police said.

The driver of the fleeing vehicle was pronounced dead at a hospital. He had two 12-year-old female passengers, one who is hospitalized in critical condition and the other hospitalized in serious condition.

The other vehicle included two 18-year-old males and a 19-year-old male. All three are listed in stable condition with serious injuries, police said.

All six of the teens are from Milwaukee.
