Juvenile killed in crash while attempting to flee from Rowlett police

The Rockwall Police Department is investigating a fatality accident involving a juvenile driver who was fleeing police at the time of the crash.

Just after 1:00AM on Friday morning, Rowlett police were pursuing a vehicle along Interstate 30 in the area of Horizon Road when they requested assistance from the Rockwall Police Department. During the pursuit, the suspect lost control of the vehicle and crashed through a fence, into the backyard of a residence in the Chandler’s Landing subdivision.

The vehicle erupted into flames after the crash. One passenger, a juvenile female, was able to get out of the car; however, the driver, also a juvenile female, was unable to exit. She was found dead in the car after firefighters extinguished the flames.

Detectives determined the vehicle was stolen earlier in the evening.

The identities of the two juvenile females was not released.
