That is when witnesses told police the vehicle went airborne and its roof struck a wooden utility pole snapping the pole in half and taking it out of the ground.

The vehicle then landed on a barbed wire fence at Silver Springs Bottle Water Company.

The teen died at the scene.

Police say Wilson took his grandmother’s car without asking.
