BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Police are investigating a fatal accident that killed a teen and injured three others.

Weijia Jiang has more on the twist in the case.

Police are not only checking out why the car crashed, but also why the victims were in it to begin with.  The vehicle was reported stolen earlier this week.

The car smashed into a tree Thursday night, killing 17-year-old Lishinia Miller.

The 1991 Lexus sedan was traveling southbound on Belair Road when, for a reason unknown, suddenly crashed just before 9 p.m.

Investigators say the car was reported stolen out of Baltimore County on Tuesday. They’re looking at how the victims are linked to it.

The three others inside were taken to the hospital. Two 19-year-old men are listed in critical condition.  A 19-year-old woman was treated and released.

Police are investigating if the heavy rain at the time of the crash played a role.  So far no charges have been filed.

Police say no other vehicles were involved in the fatal crash.
