Santa Cruz, CA- 6 Teenagers Injured After Teen Driver Crashed Car Into A Tree
6 teenagers from San Jose were injured after a 14-year old driver crashed a car into a tree in Santa Cruz, CA early Wednesday morning, August 28, 2019. Officers reportedly attempted to stop a 2001 GMC Yukon for an obstructed license plate violation about 3 am in Capitola in Santa Cruz, CA. The 14-year old driver drove away upon being stopped by officers. California Highway Patrol officers then chased the teen driver in a short pursuit. The chase came to a stop when the teen driver lost control of the car, overturned it, and crashed it into a tree on Portola Drive, west of 41st Avenue. 4 of the teenagers who were occupants of the car were wearing seatbelts. 2 teenagers who were occupants of the said car, though, were not wearing seatbelts. As a result, one of these teenagers not wearing a seatbelt was ejected out of the car during the crash. All 6 teenagers who were occupants of the car sustained major injuries.
