BARBERTON, Ohio (AP) – Police investigators say a 15-year-old boy is dead and two other teens are hurt after they led police on a high-speed chase that ended in a crash in Summit County.

New Franklin Township police were called at about 4:30 a.m. Thursday for a report of a car playing chicken with other vehicles. Police spotted the car and, after it entered Barberton, it hit a utility pole, slid down an embankment and landed on train tracks.

Barberton police say Seth Pallone was ejected from the Chevrolet Impala that crashed. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Pallone was behind the wheel of the car. Two 14-year-old boys have been hospitalized but their conditions aren’t known.

The crash remains under investigation.
