GSP: 17-year-old killed in deadly crash by car being pursued by sheriff's vehicle

Authorities are investigating a deadly crash in DeKalb County early Sunday morning that left a teenager dead. 

The crash happened around 3:30 a.m. during a police chase involving a Clayton County Sheriff's Office vehicle, according to officials.

FOX 5 spotted two vehicles collided on the north side of Moreland Avenue with severe damage; one vehicle's left side was completely crumpled. Not far was a Clayton County Sheriff's Office vehicle with minor damage to the back left side, stopped at the median. Moreland Ave. was shut down from Constitution Road to Bailey Street for several hours after the wreck. 

A trail of glass and car parts extended nearly 100 yards from the crash.

The Georgia State Patrol said the 17-year old driver of one car was killed when the vehicle being pursued struck her car. A 19-year-old passenger in that car was also critically injured.   

The driver and three passengers in the car being pursued were also injured with unknown injuries.

Charges are pending in the case.

DeKalb County Police, the Clayton County Sheriff's Office, Georgia State Patrol, and Atlanta Police were all on scene, deploying a drone to capture the extensiveness of the site.

The incident happened in DeKalb's jurisdiction, but the investigation is being conducted by the Georgia State Patrol and the  Clayton County Sheriff's Office.
