According to the Phoenix police, the boy, identified as Alonzo Reyes III, 14, was in an SUV with other teens, died in a crash that happened near 67th Avenue and Buckeye Road in the early morning on Wednesday.

Police officers responded to a call at approximately 2:00 a.m. Wednesday. The officers did not find a scene but did spot an SUV that was driving with its lights off in the neighborhood.

Officer James Holmes said that officers attempted to stop the vehicle, but the driver of the SUV fled the scene. Officers backed off from the chase, turning off their flashing lights. However, they later discovered the crashed vehicle.
