KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) – An investigation into a wreck that killed two teens remains ongoing more than a week after their death. The two died in a crash April 13, after a Knox County Sheriff’s deputy instigated a chase with a vehicle that had been reported stolen.

Around 11:30 p.m. that Wednesday, a Knox County deputy says he spotted a pickup truck driving recklessly in the Clinton Highway and Pleasant Ridge Road area. A press release from the sheriff’s office states the license plate of the vehicle matched that of a stolen vehicle report by the Knoxville Police Department.

The deputy began pursuing the vehicle around 11:39 p.m., KCSO said. At approximately 11:46 p.m., the driver lost control of the vehicle after going over railroad tracks in the 7500 block of Ballcamp Pike and struck a tree.

The driver and the passenger, both minors under the age of 18, were pronounced dead at the scene. Identities of the teens have not been released publicly.

An investigation into the pursuit and crash remains ongoing.
