YONKERS, N.Y. (AP) - Police say two teenagers in a stolen van led officers on a chase before crashing in Yonkers and killing another driver.

Yonkers police said Tuesday a 16-year-old boy and 14-year-old girl were in a stolen 1997 Dodge Ram when it crashed around 4:15 p.m. Monday.

The two teens were critically injured. No charges have been filed.

Police say officers began chasing the van after receiving a 911 call reporting the occupants may have been breaking into parking meters.

They say the van’s driver wouldn’t pull over and led police on a pursuit. Investigators say surveillance video shows the van driving on the wrong side of the road.

The pursuit ended when the van crashed into a Hyundai Sonata sedan. The driver of the car, 46-year-old Sharlene Stinson, was killed.
