Police allege a group of people had assaulted a 17-year-old boy outside a house at Wollstonecraft at 4pm, The Daily Telegraph reported.
The group then fled the scene and a bystander phoned triple zero to give police a description of the car that sped away.
Police then pursued the Holden Commodore but pulled away after it crossed onto the wrong side of the road.
A 16-year-old girl was allegedly behind the wheel of the vehicle when it then crashed into a tree and burst into flames.
Perrin suffered multiple critical injuries and was being cared for at Royal North Shore Hospital but tragically died on Thursday night.
