According to KSAT, a crash involving a stolen SUV in San Antonio, Texas has left one dead and two others injured.
Police say the vehicle was crashed into the wall of a warehouse, leaving a hole in the brick. Before that, the car also hit a fire hydrant and a power pole causing damage to both that may take days to repair.
The teenager driving the car, 16-year-old Felipe Rezaie, was thrown from the car and died. The other two in the car with him were taken to University Hospital to treat their injuries.
Teens that are 16 to 17 years of age are almost 9 times more likely to be in a car crash than adults and about 6 times more likely to die in one.
These crashes are the largest cause of death and disability for teenagers in America. However, most of the crashes come from a lack of attention or experience on the part of the teenage drivers.
