Three teenage passengers were hurt after a rollover car collision into a utility pole early Friday morning.

At approximately 2:30 a.m., the car was heading east on South 56th Street when it hit the pole and rolled over, eventually resting on its roof in a parking lot near South Warner Street, according to Tacoma Police spokesperson Wendy Haddow.

The driver fled the scene while two 18-year-olds and a 15-year-old were hurt. The older teens are ok, according to KIRO 7, but the 15-year-old has serious injuries.



Police are looking for the driver as it is not yet known if the car that crashed — a Toyota Camry — was stolen.
