A 14-year-old boy died and two other teens were arrested after a stolen car they were driving crashed in St. Paul, Minnesota.
The accident happened shortly after five in the evening. Officers discovered the stolen car on Maryland Street and were about to stop it when the driver, a 16-year-old boy, rolled off, according to St.Paul Police Department spokesman Steve Linders.
The driver crashed into Rice Street and Ivy Avenue West, drove away and hit a lamppost several blocks away on East Rose Avenue and Sylvain Street, turning the car on its side.
Linders said one of the passengers, a 14-year-old boy, was thrown from the car during the accident. When the officers arrived at the scene, they found him lying in the middle of the street with serious injuries.
The officers assisted and called in the St. Paul Fire Paramedics, who took him to a nearby hospital. Police said he died overnight.
The officers searched the area close to the accident, looking for the driver and another passenger. They located the driver a few blocks away on West Geranium Street and arrested him.
The other passenger, another 14-year-old boy, was found hiding between two garbage bins in a nearby alley. He had drugs in his pocket and was arrested for possession.
At around 8 a.m, Lenders said the car was stolen from a construction site in St. Paul.
The accident is still under investigation
