When the delivery driver returned to his truck, the 16-year-old was sitting in the driver’s seat and “pretended like he had a weapon,” she said. The driver then backed off.
The theft was reported at 9:30 a.m., setting off a police chase down Mount Zion Boulevard. At one point, she said the teen hit a patrol car and drove the wrong way. He reportedly blew through a red light and hit a truck.
"That actually caused his vehicle to spin out of control and he struck three pedestrians who were standing on the median," she said.
They were flagging down cars to raise money for a local high school, according to Channel 2.
The investigation briefly shut down both Mount Zion Boulevard and Mount Zion Road Saturday afternoon.
Police said the driver, who is not being identified because he is a minor, is expected to face multiple felony charges.
