A teenage girl is dead after the stolen vehicle she was inside of crashed into a concrete pillar, Texas police said.
The vehicle, a silver 2023 Hyundai, was reported stolen at 3:35 a.m. on Nov. 20, the Beaumont Police Department said in a news release.
Officers headed to the scene of the auto burglary and arrived just as the suspects were fleeing, according to the release.
A short distance away, the driver lost control and slammed into a concrete pillar near Interstate 10, police said. Four people got out and ran on foot, though officers caught two of them.
Police found a fifth person, a 13-year-girl, dead inside of the vehicle, the release said.
The two remaining suspects have not been located.
An investigation is underway.
Beaumont is roughly 85 miles east of downtown Houston.
