Teens Critical After Massachusetts Crash

Three teenagers are fighting for their lives at a Massachusetts hospital following a violent crash and high-speed chase which began in Connecticut.

Douglas, Massachusetts Police Chief Patrick Foley says it began with a vehicle stolen in Thompson, Connecticut, which led police on a chase exceeding speeds of 100 miles an hour northbound on Interstate-395.

Foley says an officer in his town later clocked the vehicle doing 77 on a local street before it crashed into a fence, sheared a utility pole and rolled several times.

Police say the 15-year-old male driver from Putnam, and the front-seat passenger ,  a 16-year-old male from Dudley, Mass., were ejected from the vehicle,  while the rear passenger, a 17-year-old female from Ware, Mass.,  was trapped in the back seat.

All three were taken to UMass medical center,  where they were  reported in critical condition.
