SEATTLE (AP) - Seattle police say a 25-year-old man in a stolen car crashed into another vehicle with a family of four inside.
Police say that a man in south Seattle was warming up his car Thursday evening when another man jumped inside. The car owner had left a gun inside the vehicle and the suspect found it, threatening the car owner with the weapon. Police say the car thief drove off with the owner chasing after him in another car.
Soon after that, a police cruiser began following the suspect and that's when he crossed into an intersection and crashed into a vehicle carrying the family of four.
The father in the car was trapped inside and had to be freed. A 7-year-old boy was thrown from the car and a 5-year-old girl and a teen girl also suffered serious injuries.
The stolen car suspect was also hurt, but not seriously.
