LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A young man who wrecked a stolen car and killed four teens received his third chance at freedom Wednesday.

Herbert Lee was released from prison after serving time for driving a stolen car in the summer of 2012. His arrest came just months after he walked out of a juvenile detention center for the deaths of four teens killed when Lee crashed a stolen vehicle during a police chase in 2008.

He was a juvenile at the time so Lee was released from custody for that case two years ago.
