FOUR TEENS PASS AWAY IN HIGH-SPEED CHASE WITH LAW ENFORCEMENT IN FLORIDA

Law enforcement says four teenagers were killed in a crash during a high-speed chase involving state troopers in Bradford County, Florida.

The four teens were between the ages of 14 and 16.

Two died on the scene and the other two died from their injuries in the hospital.

Officials said two of the teenagers were Newberry High School students.

Bradford County Sheriff’s Office deputies said the pursuit started with an SUV that was stolen out of Gainesville. It was detected by a license plate reader hours later.

A sheriff’s deputy confirmed the SUV was stolen and followed it while waiting for backup.

Once backup arrived, deputies attempted to pull the SUV over, but it slowed down and then sped off.

Deputies reached speeds of 110 miles per hour during the chase.

Officers pulled back after they were unable to keep up with the vehicle and a Florida Highway Patrol trooper continued the chase.

The trooper rammed the vehicle and used a PIT maneuver, causing the SUV to roll over and collide with a cement pole.

Two of the teenagers in the SUV were wearing ankle monitors and three had active warrants.
