MILWAUKEE (AP) - Authorities say a 15-year-old boy has died after crashing a stolen car during a police chase in Milwaukee last week.

The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner’s office says Marco Hilson of Milwaukee died late Saturday at Children’s Hospital.

The Journal Sentinel (http://bit.ly/1QbpS6f ) reports the car Hilson was driving had been taken at gunpoint just after 10:30 p.m. Wednesday. With help from the car’s OnStar service, police were able to locate the car.

Police say when the teen saw police, he fled, ran a red light and caused a five-vehicle crash.

Two women and a man, who were in the other vehicles, were hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries.

Milwaukee Police Chief Ed Flynn has said the police pursuit was within department policy because officers knew the car was taken during an armed confrontation.
