RIVERSIDE, Ohio (WDTN) – The Montgomery County Coroner’s Office has identified the three teenagers that died after a crash in Riverside that stemmed from an attempted carjacking.
Ja’Sean Davis, 15, Da’Real Wilson, 14, and Ronald White, 16, all died in an attempted carjacking that led to a two-car accident. Two of the teens were pronounced dead at the scene. A third was taken to the hospital where he later died from his injuries.
A fourth juvenile was found and detained by Wright Patterson Air Force Base Security Forces.
Riverside police said the incident happened Wednesday around 11:20 p.m. Four teenaged males tried to take another person’s vehicle in the Auto Zone parking lot at Airway Road and Woodman Drive.
Police said the person did not give up his car and the suspects fled the scene toward Airway Road.
The victim, according to police, followed the suspects trying to get a license plate. The suspects then fired several shots at the victim during a chase. The two cars collided, and the suspect vehicle hit a tree at Airway Road and Hickam Drive.
“Three young males were ejected from the vehicles. Two were pronounced dead on scene. One was transported later to a local hospital and pronounced dead at the hospital,” said RPD Major Adam Colon. Colon said a 4th suspect and the victim made it out alive.
Bruce Park was an ear witness to the crash, and says it’s sad to hear the events that occurred. “They were described as young males. I would say in their teens maybe. Yeah, it’s sad. I’m 65. when somebody goes that quick it makes you think,” said Park.
Investigators discovered the suspect vehicle had been reported stolen from Dayton. The investigation is currently ongoing and actively being investigated by the Riverside Police Department Investigations Section.
