A teenager is dead and another critically injured after a high-speed crash police say was the possible result of joyriding.

Investigators say 17 year-old Raynord Ellison and his passenger 16 year-old Rico Stewart crashed while speeding just before midnight at the corner of Diane and Creekmoor.

The car hit a telephone pole guide wire and flipped 3 times, skidded into a curb and crashed through a fence.

The impact ejected both teens.

Ellison died at SAMMC and Stewart was listed in critical condition.
