A 15-year-old girl sustained a Cleveland Car Accident Injury as the result of an incident that occurred earlier this week involving a stolen vehicle. Records show the crash happened Monday morning, at the intersection of Kinsman Avenue and East 79th Street on the east side of the city.
According to an article released by ABC 5 News, a 65-year-old man was carrying large chunks of stone in a stolen Ford F-150 truck along Kinsman Avenue. As he approached the intersection with 79th Street, he failed to stop at a red light and plowed into a dump truck. The pickup ricocheted off the massive vehicle and into the path of a Chevrolet Cavalier.
The initial impact sparked a chain reaction crash involving four other vehicles that ejected a large stone from the rear of the stolen pickup and through the passenger side window of a Jeep. The 15-year-old girl riding in the jeep sustained serious head and neck injuries as a result of the incident. She was rushed to a local hospital to receive further treatment. Two others victims were also treated at the facility and later released.
