The Salisbury Police Department is looking into why police pursued a teenager, Jorgens Sydney, in a car chase involving two patrol units that resulted in his death, when his vehicle crashed into a utility pole at the intersection of Pine Bluff Road and Camden Avenue.

The two officers who were driving during the chase last Thursday night have been put on paid administrative leading pending the outcome of the investigation.
