A 13-year old boy who helped carjack a Jaguar died when a police chase ended in a crash on Sunday night in Irvington, N.J.

Police started chasing a vehicle at 10 p.m. that had been reported carjacked on Sunday afternoon.

The driver refused to stop and took off.  Police pursued the car, which continued to attempt to elude apprehension. The vehicle hit another car at Clinton Avenue and Sanford Avenue and then hit a utility pole.

A boy, who was a passenger in the carjacked vehicle, was pronounced dead at the scene.  The other three juvenile occupants in the vehicle were apprehended at the scene by Irvington officers.  They were a 14-year-old, a 15-year-old and a 17-year old.

Police did not release the names of any of the teenagers.

An occupant of the civilian vehicle involved in the crash was transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Police say they found a weapon in the carjacked vehicle.
