According to the York County Sheriff’s Office, just before 10 p.m., the teens were clocked by a South Carolina Highway Patrol trooper going 108 mph near I-77 and Fort Mill. The driver then got off the highway on Gold Hill Road and did a U-turn in front of deputies.

Authorities followed the car toward Springfield middle and elementary schools before the teens lost control and crashed into a culvert. The car then caught on fire, the sheriff’s office said.
