A fiery, four-vehicle crash involving a stolen car on Indian River County left three people injured, Indian River County police said.
Police officials were tracking a stolen 2018 Chevy Camaro, which was speeding eastbound when it rear-ended a 2010 Mazda carrying five people and then hit a home-heating-oil truck on Route 25 near South Beach in Martin County, Police authorities said.
The Mazda burst into flames, critically injuring its two occupants, and struck a 1999 Infiniti, whose driver appeared not to be seriously injured, police officials said. “I came out to go shopping, and then I turn the corner and there’s a car in flames right in front of me,” said a 66-year-old woman said who lives on the road where the crash had happened.
“I got out and ran over and one police officer was trying to open the car door. The flames were just too much for him.”
The force of the crash ejected one occupant of the stolen Camaro, identified by relatives as a 21-year-old man. A second occupant, and the truck driver, were taken to a hospital in Indian River County with non-life-threatening injuries.
Indian River County cops were alerted to the stolen car and tracked it to an apartment complex about a mile from the crash scene.
