Night video shows deadly moment Florida teens in stolen Maserati lost control at 123 mph

Three Florida teens made what proved to be a fatal decision to steal an expensive Maserati luxury sports car and would soon crash the vehicle after reaching speeds of 123 mph, leaving one of them dead and the other two seriously injured.

Deputies in Pinellas County were responding to a burglary call when they noticed the teens who has sneaked out of their homes in the area — a helicopter was already on the scene. The trio, between 15 and 16 years old, were seen getting into the Maserati and driving away, according to Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri.

The vehicle was traveling at normal speeds when two deputies began following it. When they activated their lights the Maserati sped off, Gualtieri explained. The deputies were ordered to “disengage” but were able to observe the Maserati driving at a high rate of speed.

“As [the driver] punches it, the deputies immediately turn off their overheads, the sergeant got on the radio and told them to disengage, which they did immediately,” the sheriff said during a news conference.

“Somebody’s life is not worth it,” Gualtieri added, in reference to the decision to back off from the pursuit.

The PCSO helicopter was recording the scene from above and the Maserati could be seen speeding down a highway before the driver loses control and crashes, sending the vehicle flying through the air, hitting a sign and landing upside down.

A 25-caliber semi-automatic handgun was reportedly found in the front seat of the vehicle that didn’t belong to the car owner, as well as a glove and black ski mask.
