A 17-year-old boy lost his life after crashing Saturday night, Sacramento Police believe.

The crash happened Bruceville Road.

Witnesses told police the victim had been racing with two other vehicles. The victim looks to have tried passing one of the cars and over-corrected, crashing into a light pole.

Firefighters had to extricate the victim from his car.

“We do have a couple of other teenagers and adults possibly in another vehicle who are very cooperative with us at this point,” said Officer Alisa Buckley with the Sacramento Police Department. “We are unsure who all was involved in terms of street racing.”

Police said the victim did have a passenger with him. That person was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

    Wow how heartless are you. Have some compassion. If you’re going to say things like this, please keep it to yourself next time.

    You're disrespectful as hell! You know nothing about Josh and it's disrespectful and ignorant of you to say someone deserves to die! Put yourself in place of his mother or his friends and family how would you feel? I know you might have had someone close to you die and it's disgusting and sickening to see a comment like this on a young teen's death. Ask God for forgiveness because you are wrong for saying some sh*t like this.

    the fact that you guys are making news assuming him and his friends were some kind of delinquents is sickening. a boy died, there's no need to make him sound like he died an idiot. because he wasn't.
    He was a great football player, a hakka man, and everyones friend.
    right now our whole school is morning, the second people found out i know all his friends were at the hospital, and those who couldn't be were calling each other trying to comfort ourselves.
    please respect his death. we're trying to cope right now, if this is going to be news, make it positive. Come to Cosumnes Oaks High monday and see. talk to students. See how close our school is, how many people he affected and how many people he was loved by.
    Your media is unnecessary, you're disrespecting his death.
