MILANO, Texas (KBTX) - Three young men from Cameron died in a fiery crash Thursday following a pursuit with the Milam County Sheriff’s Department.

According to the Texas Department of Public Safety, a 2015 Dodge Challenger was speeding southbound on US 190 in Milam County. A deputy was attempting to pull the car over for a traffic violation, when the car sped off.

The Dodge attempted to pass another vehicle on the southbound shoulder when the car’s right tires came off and the driver lost control. The Dodge crossed into the northbound lane, crashed through a fence and ran into a tree. It then rolled upside down and caught on fire, according to DPS.

The vehicle crashed on private property just south of CR 337 and Highway 36/US 190.

The Milano Fire Department responded to the scene after the vehicle became fully engulfed in flames.

The driver, 19-year-old Phabian Bynaum, and passengers Malik Thomas, 21, and Davarius Bynaum, 20 were all killed in the crash.
