Four young teens are injured, one critically, after crashing a stolen car Monday in San Jose, according to San Jose Police Department.

Around 10:13 p.m. officers tried to pull over a blue, 1995 Honda Accord, which was reported stolen, in the area of McLaughlin Ave. and Tully Rd.

“The driver fled northbound McLaughlin Ave. with its lights out,” police said.

Officers did not chase the car. Instead, officers called in the last known location of the car.

Shortly after, a white 2014 Ford C-Max was turning onto Bacchus Dr. when the stolen Honda smashed into the C-Max “nearly head-on,” police said. 

“The Honda continued onto the sidewalk where it collided with a traffic pole and skidded to a stop.”

A 14-year-old girl and a 16-year-old boy tried to run away, but were stopped by officers. Both of them were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

The driver was a 13-year-old boy. Police say he was trapped inside the car and also was transported with minor injuries. 

Another 13-year-old boy in the car has life-threatening injuries, police said.

The driver of the Ford was a man of unknown age. He is hospitalized with injuries believed to be non-life-threatening.
