PHOTO: A teenage girl was killed in a violent crash involving a 14-year-old driver who was said to be trying to evade police in Encino Tuesday morning. The crash occurred about 12:15 a.m. after officers observed a Toyota driving along Ventura Boulevard with its headlights off. The officers made verbal contact with the driver who did not stop, but instead took off at a high rate of speed, Los Angeles Police Department Captain Jeff Hollis said. Hollis said the officers did not pursue the vehicle, but it crashed into a traffic pole at Ventura Boulevard and Balboa Avenue a short time later. Video shows the car had burst into flames and was fully engulfed as officers tried to get the victims out. Officers used a baton and a fire extinguisher to break the car’s windows and douse the flames.
