(INDIANAPOLIS) - One teen was killed and another teen was injured after a police chase early Monday that ended with a car crashing into a firehouse on the city’s north side.

Dispatchers said the chase started in Hendricks County and ended at 56th and Knollton Road about 5 a.m.

Detectives said the teens were at a rehabilitation facility in Bloomington, Ill., and the car they were driving was stolen from that area on Sunday.

The chase started when an officer made a traffic stop for the car's broken license plate light.

The driver was remained hospitalized and would likely face charges, police said.

The victims' names were not released.
