Two girls killed in crash during Woodward police chase

The Associated Press - August 9, 2017 8:49 am

WOODWARD, Okla. (AP) – The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says a 12-year-old girl and a 13-year-old girl have died after the car they were riding in crashed while being pursued by police in western Oklahoma.

An OHP report says the two were in a car driven by a 14-year-old boy when the car crashed in Woodward shortly before 1 a.m. Wednesday.

Their names were not released.

The report says a Woodward officer tried to stop the car for running a stop sign when the driver sped away. The car eventually hit a curb and rolled.

A 13-year-old boy in the car is hospitalized in stable condition for injuries he suffered in the crash while the driver and another 14-year-old boy were treated and released.

Both girls were from Woodward and the boys are from Vici.
