INDIANAPOLIS - A 13-year-old was OK after the car he was in was stolen on the city’s east side Thursday evening, police said.
Officials said it appeared the vehicle was stolen from the Admiral gas station in the 9100 block of East 21st Street, a spokesman with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department said.
Police said a relative of the teen went inside to pay for gas and that is when the suspect took the car while the teen was inside.
Police said the teen either jumped out or was dropped off near 21st Street and Post Road. He was checked out at Riley Hospital for Children and was said to be fine.
The driver of the car then took off onto eastbound Interstate 70 at a high rate of speed. When the suspect got off at the Mt. Comfort Road exit, he lost control and crashed, police said.
Police said the vehicle flipped several times and the suspect was unconscious when they arrived to the scene. He was taken to Eskenazi Health in serious condition.
Few other details were released.
