A man has been charged in connection with a crash involving a stolen vehicle that left one man dead and another injured Friday night in the Far South Side West Pullman neighborhood.

About 8:45 p.m., officers responding to a call of shots fired saw a white Ford driving away from the 12700 block of South Halsted, police said.

The westbound Ford, which had been reported stolen, ran a red light before striking a red Toyota Corolla at the intersection of 127th and Throop, police said. The impact caused the Toyota to crash into a 2003 Saturn.

The 18-year-old man driving the Toyota was pronounced dead at the scene, police said. He was identified as Tevin J. Jones-Rogers of the Auburn Gresham neighborhood, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

A 20-year-old man in the passenger seat of the Toyota was taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn. Police said he was expected to survive. No one else was hurt.

Corey N. Brewer, 18, was taken into custody after the crash and was charged with a misdemeanor count of criminal trespass to a vehicle, police said. He is next scheduled to appear in court June 26 at Branch 35-2 at 727 E. 111th St.
