Three people in a stolen vehicle died after the driver sped away from police, officers pursued and the vehicle crashed in Minneapolis early Monday, according to police.

They were 13- to 16-years-old, relatives told local television stations.

Officers saw a vehicle, which was stolen with force during a carjacking Sunday morning, about 1:45 a.m. in the area of Dowling and Logan avenues.

They tried to pull the vehicle over, but “the driver attempted to elude the officers and fled at a high rate of speed,” police said in a statement. “During this pursuit, the suspect vehicle got substantially ahead of the pursuing squads.”

Officers saw the driver lose control of the vehicle about 2 miles away, in the area of Emerson and 18th avenues, and the vehicle rolled. Three people in the vehicle died in the single-vehicle crash.
