Six teens crammed into a stolen car being chased by police crashed into another vehicle, critically injuring a woman and child and injuring a man.

One of the teens in the stolen car suffered a broken leg.

In total, four people were hurt in the two-vehicle collision in South Los Angeles at the end of the police pursuit, authorities said Tuesday.

The crash was reported at 11:12 p.m. Monday at 6309 South Central Ave., said Brian Humphrey of the Los Angeles Fire Department.

Officers were in pursuit of a stolen vehicle when the collision occurred, said Los Angeles Police Det. Meghan Aguilar.

A woman and a child from the victim’s car were hospitalized in critical condition and a man was in serious condition, Aguilar said.

There were six juveniles in the stolen car, four boys and two girls, she said. One girl suffered a broken leg.

Some of the patients were trapped briefly until firefighters could free them, Humphrey said.
