Two girls, a 12-year-old and a 13-year-old, are dead after a police chase in Oklahoma early Wednesday morning ended in their car rolling over.
Police were trying to pull over the car, whose driver was a 14-year-old boy, after they saw it run a stop sign at around 1 a.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 9. Instead of stopping, the car accelerated, eventually hitting a curb, which caused it to go airborne and roll over.
Three of the five people in the car were ejected, Fox 25 reports. Four of the five were not wearing seat belts.
Police have not yet released the names of the car’s occupants.
The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says the 13-year-old girl was pronounced dead around 3 a.m. and the 12-year-old girl later died of her injuries.
A 13-year-old boy was eventually flown to Oklahoma University Children’s Hospital with a leg injury and is in stable condition. Another 14-year-old boy was treated and released, Fox 25 reports.
The 14-year-old driver, who was treated for a head injury, has also been released from the hospital.
The girls in the car were from Woodward and the boys were from Vici, about 20 miles south of Woodward.
