PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Charges are expected to be filed against at least one of the people inside a stolen vehicle that crashed on an icy hillside in West Mifflin on Sunday afternoon.
It happened at the intersection of Oak Street and Outlook Drive.
Sources say the stolen car was spotted at the Speedway convenience store near Kennywood. The witness then called police, who started tracking the car.
Neighbors on Outlook Drive say the stolen car came speeding through their neighborhood, slammed into a parked car and a utility pole, then crashed and flipped over near the street’s dead end.
Firefighters say the frigid temperatures and wind chills made the extrication process difficult. One of the passengers was ejected. The driver and another passenger had to be pulled from the wreckage. They were all taken to the hospital. None of the injuries immediately appeared life-threatening.
Law enforcement officers on the scene told KDKA charges will be filed.
The family that owns the vehicle showed up at the scene to gather personal belongings that were inside the car, including several children’s items like toys and a stroller.
