A Sheffield, Alabama, juvenile died early Monday in a crash during a high-speed police pursuit near Rogersville.

Alabama State Trooper Cpl. Gregory S. Simpson said in a news release that the juvenile, whose age and name have been withheld, was driving a stolen 2018 Mitsubishi Highlander east on U.S. Highway 72 while being pursued by "multiple agencies," the release states.

The Mitsubishi suddenly swerved off the road about 2.5 miles west of Rogersville and overturned several times, ejecting the juvenile driver.

The juvenile driver was transported to North Alabama Medical Center where he died of his injuries, authorities said.

An investigation is continuing.
