SALISBURY, Md.- WBOC has confirmed the identity of the 15-year-old driver involved in Thursday's police chase in Salisbury, which ended in his death. Jorgens Sydney of Fruitland was a freshman at James M. Bennett High School.

"We played soccer the night he died," said Sydney's friend, Kevin Jeanty. "He told me 'Kevin I wanna go home.' It was like 9:55. I said 'Okay, see you tomorrow in gym class."

"On Thursday night he went to the YMCA to play soccer but I didn't go that day because I had homework to do," Sydney's friend, Roody Junior Jean, told WBOC. "On his way back to home I heard he didn't stop in a stop sign. So a police car was trying to pull him over and he was speeding because he didn't have a license."

Salisbury Police Chief Barbara Duncan confirmed Sydney did not have a license or permit. She said he committed "numerous traffic violations" before officers attempted to pull him over

The entire incident is under investigation, and Duncan said the three officers involved remain on leave.
