A 17-year-old boy from North Carolina sped away during a traffic stop and crashed into another car, killing one and hurting two, police said.
On Jan. 11, 17-year-old Tayshawn Lowery was pulled over during a traffic stop in Charlotte when he sped away from the scene, according to authorities.
The police chased after Lowery, who was driving a stolen vehicle, officials said.
The car chase ended in a deadly crash, as one person was killed and two other people were hospitalized, police said.
Donte Jones, whose parents were injured in the crash, told WSOC-TV, “Carlos, my stepfather, he still can’t walk. My mom is still on crutches.”
Authorities said his parents, Carlos and Trish Gatewood, have a long road to recovery and their friend, Micky Brown, was killed in the crash.
Lowery was known for having to wear an ankle monitor, WSOC-TV stated. However, it was not known if he was wearing one at the time of this incident.
Police said there was a handgun in the vehicle Lowery was driving, which is illegal for him to have because of his age.
