Teen Girl Killed After Panhandle Car Chase Crash

CHIPLEY, Fla. (AP) -- One teenage girl is dead and three young
men have been arrested following a lengthy Panhandle car chase
involving many law enforcement agencies.

The Washington County Sheriff's Office says the incident started
early Friday on Panama City Beach when a woman reported an
attempted carjacking.

The suspects were then connected to the theft of another car
moments later at a convenience store.

Different law enforcement officers then chased the stolen car
and the suspects' original car.

One car crashed and the passenger, a 16-year-old female, was
killed. The driver, a 17-year-old male, was seriously injured.

The second car struck a Washington County Sheriff's Office
vehicle before crashing into another car. The 22-year-old driver
and 19-year-old passenger were arrested.

The Florida Highway Patrol is investigating.
