A third teen has died from injuries related to an early November car crash in Gresham, police reported Tuesday.

Hailey Aguilar, 16, died after being taken off life support recently, Gresham police said. She was one of six Gresham-area teenagers who were involved in a Nov. 6 crash. The driver of the car, Phoenix Forman, died at the scene and a passenger, Rita Grace “Gracie” Sukosd, died at the hospital shortly after the crash. Three other teens were injured but are expected to survive.

Police say they arrived at Southeast Butler Road and Linden Drive shortly before 9 p.m. for a report of a crash. They found that a Volkswagen Jetta, carrying the six teenagers, had crossed the center line of Butler Road and crashed head-on into a Ford F350. The driver of the pickup truck, a 40-year-old Gresham man, was treated for injuries and released, and cooperated with investigators.

Police said they are still investigating to determine what caused the crash. They said the teens who were involved attended four different high schools in the area.

One man is in custody and another is at large after a Saturday car chase that began in Monroe County, ended in a crash in Wayne County and led to drug and gun charges.

One man is in custody and another is at large after a Saturday car chase that began in Monroe County, ended in a crash in Wayne County and led to drug and gun charges.

Kevin Taylor, 22, and Khalif Pinnix, 44, both of Newark, New Jersey, are charged with drug possession with intent to deliver and other offenses in connection with the 6:18 p.m. chase that began in Tobyhanna Township, proceeded north on Interstate 380 and ended in a crash on Route 435 in Wayne County, Pocono Mountain Regional police said.

Taylor is in Monroe County jail with bail denied because he is considered a flight risk, according to court papers. Police are looking for Pinnix.

The incident began with police helping the Atlantic City prosecutor’s office on a New Jersey felony theft investigation. Police saw a suspect leave a Tobyhanna Township residence and get into a vehicle.

When police tried to stop the vehicle, it sped away with officers in pursuit. After the crash, Pinnix, the driver, ran into nearby woods while police took Taylor into custody. Police found more than $57,000 in cash and drug delivery paraphernalia in the vehicle.

This led to a search of a residence in the 100 block of Skytop Drive in Tobyhanna Township.

Police found $34,828, “a large amount of” stolen merchandise, drug paraphernalia and a small amount of marijuana in the residence. Police also found $20,551 in one vehicle and a stolen handgun in another vehicle parked there.

Police expect to charge a third person for the stolen gun.

An off-duty firefighter and a bystander smashed the window of a car to rescue a driver as the vehicle went up in flames in Harwich, officials said.

The car crashed on Route 6 at the Rest Area just east of Exit 10 around 8:15 p.m. Friday. A caller reported to the Harwich Fire Department that the car had rolled over and was on fire in the woods, according to a news release from fire officials.

As Harwich firefighters were on their way to the scene, another call came in reporting that the driver was still in the car, officials said.

Then, off-duty firefighter Josh Ford arrived at the scene and, along with a bystander, went over to the car.

The car’s gas tank had ruptured and flames were coming out from underneath the vehicle. The two grabbed a tire iron from the trunk of the car and broke out the rear passenger window, as fire was blocking the driver’s side of the car, the news release read.

They helped the driver get out of the car and over to the rest area.

Harwich firefighters put out the flames. The driver was taken to Cape Cod Hospital with injures that were not considered life-threatening, officials said.

“As a department, we are all very proud of Firefighter Ford for his actions. It is one thing to act this way while on duty, with your fellow firefighters and in full gear. But it is quite another thing to act this way while driving down the road with your family,” Chief David LeBlanc said.

“Josh’s actions represent a mindset of putting the citizens before himself, and a mindset as a fire chief I believe is the core mission of the fire department. There is no doubt in my mind that if it hadn’t been for the efforts of Firefighter Ford and the bystander, the outcome from last night’s accident would have been much worse,” LeBlanc continued.

Massachusetts State Police troopers are investigating the crash.
