Crash of stolen car injures four

Four Madison teens were hospitalized after the stolen car they were in hit a light pole on E. Washington Avenue late this morning and flipped.

The Audi RS5 was stolen around 7:50 a.m. after its owner left it unlocked and running for a few minutes in his Hammersley Road driveway with hopes of having a warm car to drive to work, according to a Madison Police Department incident report.

Witnesses orginally spotted the car driving erratically and recklessly on the West Beltline Highway with speeds estimated at 90 mph.

A police sergeant spotted the Audi on East Washington Ave. shortly before the crash. He attempted to pull it over, but did not – per MPD policy – chase the car.

The driver, a 15-year-old boy is well-known to the MPD as officers have arrested him multiple times for crimes like purse snatching, armed robbery, burglary, and stealing cars.

His passengers were all girls – two are 13-years-old, one is 16-years-old. All suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
