PLYMOUTH TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -

Two suburban Detroit teenagers have been killed after the stolen car they were in crashed following a police chase.

A Livonia officer tried to pull over the Ford Mustang the two boys were in Saturday night after 911 calls about reckless driving in a school parking lot.

The driver sped up and drove into neighboring Plymouth Township, west of Detroit, where the Mustang clipped a minivan and crashed into a wooded area before catching fire.

Two people in the minivan suffered minor injuries.

The Detroit Free Press and WXYZ-TV report that the boys were students at Churchill High School in Livonia.
