SANGER, TX – Authorities said three teenagers were killed when their vehicle crashed while trying to elude police in Sanger early Sunday.

According to CBSDFW, the incident began when police spotted a vehicle suspected in possible car burglaries on North 5th Street near Interstate 35 at about 5:30 a.m.
