IRMO, SC (WIS) -

The Lexington County Coroner's Office has identified three teens killed in a high-speed chase that ended in a crash in Irmo late Wednesday night on Piney Grove Road.

The coroner's office identified the teens as Travis Lamount Green, Jr., 15; Travion D’Monte Green, 13; and  Reshad Daloamir Davis, 15. The two Greens are related. All died due to "multiple traumatic injuries sustained in the accident." The other teens in the car were 18-year-old Renaf Davis, 17-year-old Jerquaris Harper, and a 14-year-old whose name was not released. 

Irmo Police say they attempted to pull over the car, a 2008 Pontiac G6, Wednesday around 9:30 p.m. for speeding. Instead of stopping, police said, the car led officers on a chase through Irmo that ended with a crash on Piney Grove Road and Linsbury Circle after the driver of the car lost control and crashed into a tree.

Police said six people were in the car ranging in ages from 13 years old to 18 years old. None of them were wearing seatbelts. Police said speeds went in excess of 80 miles per hour. 

The three other juveniles involved in the crash are hospitalized, but their conditions are not currently known. 

“There’s no good reason why they should be dead,” Captain Courtney Dennis with Irmo PD said. “There are no winners here.”

Upon further investigation, detectives also recovered a firearm on one of the juveniles. An investigation into the crash continues, but officials say the car was overcapacity. 

Columbia police released information on the stolen car, saying it was stolen between April 3 and April 4 from a home off Broad River Road. According to the incident report, unknown people stole the locked car which had the keys inside. There were no signs of forced entry. 

Irmo police have also reviewed dashcam footage from the incident and believe they did nothing wrong as they did not perform any maneuvers to try and stop the car and did not deploy any tire deflation devices.

"This is a sad day in Irmo and a senseless tragedy has struck our community," the Irmo Police Department statement said.
