    The teen driver of a car involved in a fiery crash last month died last week.

    The crash occurred shortly after 1 a.m. on March 23 after Montgomery County police attempted to stop a vehicle that had been reported stolen, police said. The car entered Chevy Chase Circle, where it struck a tree and burst into flames.

    The driver, 16-year-old Reynard Osman, died March 28 of injuries from the March 23 crash, police said. Reynard and his front-seat passenger, 18-year-old Reeco Richardson, were pulled from the car by police after crashing at Chevy Chase Circle to end a brief chase. Richardson suffered non-life-threatening injuries in the crash and was transported to a local hospital, authorities said.

    Two passengers in the back of the car, Emanuel Demitrius Nelson, 16, and Tyree Dayon Nelson, 14, both of northwest D.C., died at the scene after officers were unable to remove them from the car before it became engulfed in flames, according to Montgomery County police.

    Montgomery County Police are still investigating the crash and are asking anyone with information to call them at 301-840-2435.
