ADELANTO, Calif. (KABC) -- For the second time in just days, the Adelanto community is mourning the death of a child killed in a traffic collision.
According to the mother of 13-year-old Ronell Thomas, her son died in a collision near Bellfower Street and Seneca Road early Sunday morning.
According to the San Bernardino Sheriff's Department, deputies with the Victor Valley/Adelanto station tried to pull over a driver without its lights on. The driver fled, lost control and crashed, according to investigators.
The car, a 2015 Chevrolet Cruze, had been reported stolen the day before. Investigators said there were five people in the vehicle at the time of the crash. Ronell, who was a passenger, was pronounced dead at the scene and two 15-year-olds were transported to hospitals for injuries. Their conditions are unknown.
The remaining two occupants fled on foot, according to the sheriff's department. One of them, a 14-year-old boy, has since been found but the fifth occupant has not been found.
Ronell's mother shared video of the aftermath with Eyewitness News, which showed firefighters and investigators responding to the scene.
