A 14-year-old driver and two passengers--aged 11 and 6--died last night after a car chase that ended in a Fontana front yard. Around 9 p.m., a CHP officer pulled over the Nissan Maxima. When he approached the car on foot, it fled. The chase hit speeds up to 90 mph and ran several red lights before careening out of control, rolling over a few times ejecting two of the boys from the car and killing them instantly. The 6-year-old who was wearing his seatbelt later died at the hospital.
