2nd teen dies after crash of stolen car into delivery van

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Des Moines authorities say a second teenager has died after the stolen car he was driving crashed into a delivery van.

Police identified him Wednesday night as 17-year-old Des Moines resident Jair Sanchez-Banos. His passenger, 16-year-old Des Moines resident Emilio Esteban Garcia, died earlier.

The car was reported stolen a little after 8:10 p.m. Monday after it was left running unattended. A vehicle matching its description was seen about 30 minutes later where gunshots rang out several blocks northwest.

Police say an officer soon spotted the suspect vehicle and tried to pull it over. It raced away but crashed into a U.S. Postal Service van and then into trees and fencing. A gun was recovered from the car.

Police say the van driver was not injured.
