When teens crash a vehicle that does not belong to them into a vehicle carrying several passengers, it is hard to brush it off by saying “Boys will be boys.” These types of accidents can have lasting consequences for those involved.
In Philadelphia, news stations showed images of a badly mangled SUV with its front doors ripped off.
The cause of the damage to the car? Two teens had allegedly stolen the vehicle and then crashed it into a trolley.
The incident occurred about the middle of last week, just before the Christmas holiday. At about 9:30 am, the stolen SUV crashed into a Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority trolley. The location of the accident was in the city’s Kingsessing section.
The two teen drivers were both critically injured and one had to be extracted from the car. Both were taken to hospitals in critical condition. Additionally, more than 20 SEPTA passengers were also taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
The names of the teens have not yet been released.
