A teen was killed after the stolen SUV he was driving overturned during a police pursuit.
After running the SUV's plates, the officers found it had been reported stolen from a home in West Brandywine Township, Pa.
The 13-year-old continued driving through the town as police tried to pull the truck over, police said.
"It appeared that the driver of the stolen vehicle was attempting to find a place to actually pull over and jump out of the vehicle," Coatesville Police Chief Julius Canale said.
Butcher eventually sideswiped several parked cars along the 600 block of Olive Street, before the SUV flipped onto its roof.
The teen was partially thrown out of the truck and pinned underneath, police said. He died at the scene and was not wearing his seatbelt.
As Coatesville and Pa. State Police investigated the crash Thursday, a memorial to the teen grew along the sidewalk. Neighbor Cynthia Taltone said she's upset with police over the persuit.
"My gripe is why would the police chase someone on a small street, period," she said.
The initial investigation has found that the persuit was far from a chase. Chief Canale said both vehicles were only traveling 10-15 miles-per-hour. Officials also say police did not strike the SUV prior to the rollover.
A vigil is planned for the teen Thursday.
