Teenage girls cause three-car crash in Southern California in stolen car

Two people were hospitalized after a police chase involving two underage females involving a stolen vehicle ended in a three-vehicle crash in South Los Angeles on Sunday night.

The incident occurred around 6:15 p.m. when Los Angeles Police Department officers spotted a stolen white Kia traveling on Obama Boulevard, Kevin Ahlemeir, sergeant with the LAPD's Southern Traffic Division, told KTLA.

When police tried to stop him, the suspected driver did not yield and officers began a chase.

As the teen driver approached La Brea Avenue, she collided with two other vehicles at the intersection, a white Chevrolet U-Haul pickup truck and a BMW.

Photos from the scene showed severe damage to all vehicles. The right front of the pickup truck was sheared off and the hood was ripped open by the force of the impact. The driver's side of the BMW was pushed inward and both windows on that side of the vehicle were blown out.

Damage was also visible on the front of the Kia and the airbags in all other vehicles were deployed as a result of the impact.

Both the driver of the BMW and the pickup truck were taken to hospital with minor injuries.

It is unclear if the teens were injured in the incident, but Sergeant Ahlemeir confirmed to KTLA that they were both taken into custody at the scene.
