PHILADELPHIA (CBS)—City police are investigating a big crash involving a stolen car on Tuesday night.

It happened around 7:30 p.m. in the 3400 block of Frankford Ave.

Police say two men in a stolen Nissan Pathfinder crashed into four cars before smashing into the front of a store at Frankford and Tioga in Kensington.

“According to witnesses, the Nissan was traveling at a very high rate of speed. When it got the intersection it hit a vehicle head-on that was going south on Frankford Ave. causing heavy front end damage to that vehicle and then causing that vehicle to hit into a third vehicle, which was also traveling south, ” said Chief Inspector Scott Small.

Small says when officers arrive they found multiple people climbing out of the car and fleeing the scene.

An 18-year-old driver was arrested. Small says the teen is being charged with leaving the scene of an accident and operating a stolen vehicle.

There were no customers in the store, but there were two female employees, Small says.

They were not injured, but were transported as a precaution.

Occupants from the two other vehicles going south on Frankford Ave. were transported and checked out.
