Teen Dies in Stolen Car Crash

Posted on April 12, 2008

A Jacksonville area teen is dead after he drove the car he allegedly stole into a home.  It happened across from Douglas Anderson School of the Arts in the St. Nicholas area of Jacksonville.

It was chaos at the scene. The car could not be easily backed out because part of the house collapsed. And family of the teen killed rushed across police tape to get to the scene.

Witnesses say three people scattered after the crash and may have been inside the car. Police are interviewing those suspects about a possible robbery earlier in the day. 

No one inside the home was injured.  Our condolences to the family of the teen who might have turned a joy ride into his final ride.
