Three Florida teens stole a Maserati and drove at incredibly high speed to evade Police, until the car became airborne, flipped over and crashed, killing one of the occupants, this according to a new police video.
The dead is a 15-year-old teen while two other teens got seriously injured after crashing a Maserati that they had just stolen around 3:20 a.m. on Sunday morning in St. Petersburg, Florida, according to the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office.
It is alleged that Keondrick Lang, a 15-year-old used his t-shirt to open the door of the 2016 Maserati to avoid getting fingerprints on the handle. The door was unlocked and the keys were in the car. Lang started driving with 16-year-old Malachi Daniels and 15-year-old Mario Bonilla as passengers, sheriff’s office reported.
Officers on the ground were alerted to the possible vehicle-theft-in-progress and tried to get near the vehicle to stop the teens before they got away, but the Maserati took off. Lang was driving. Bonilla was in the front passenger seat and Daniels was in the back.
Although the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office has a no road chase policy, the teens began speeding once they saw there were deputies in the area, the teens took off as if they were being chased, according to the sheriff.

The teens were also reported not to be having driver’s licenses.
