While their parents thought they were asleep, three teenagers found an easy vehicle to steal when they discovered a Maserati with the keys inside and opted to test drive it at full speed, causing a fatal accident.

A Florida teenager was killed and two others were injured after a Maserati was allegedly stolen and crashed early Sunday morning, according to the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office.

Sheriff’s deputies said their helicopter flight unit observed three suspects trying to break into vehicles in a Pinellas County neighborhood before successfully breaking into the Maserati, which was unlocked and had the keys inside.

According to authorities, the suspects were Keondrick Lang, 15, who was allegedly driving the car, Mario Bonilla, 15, and Malachi Daniels, 16, as his companion.

The three teens were driving eastbound at more than 80 mph without headlights when Lang lost control of the vehicle, skipped the curb, struck a business sign and flipped.

Bonilla was pronounced dead at the scene, Daniels and Lang were sent to the hospital with critical and life-threatening injuries.

“The driver of the car lost control of the car…they were small children; They are inexperienced drivers. They don’t have driver’s licenses,” Sheriff Bob Gualtieri said at a news conference.

The sheriff said the children’s parents believed the children were asleep and said they ran away from home in the middle of the night.

“You can imagine the anguish of those parents, in the last 45 minutes, when we knocked on their door and told them that one of their children died and the other is probably going to die,” Gualtieri said.

Pinellas County said it plans to release footage of the incident on Tuesday.
