3 teens injured when police chase ends in crash in Paradise Hills

Three teenagers suffered serious injuries yesterday in Paradise Hills after being involved in a police chase, according to a CBS 8 report. The teenagers were reportedly driving a stolen vehicle, with police in pursuit, when they ran a red light and crashed into an SUV.

The collision took place in the intersection of Reo Drive and Rancho Hills Drive. All three teenage boys in the stolen car were taken to Scripps Mercy Hospital from the scene.

While the nature of their injuries is not completely clear, one of the teenagers was removed from the car with the Jaws of Life. He suffered a broken femur.

The occupants of the SUV, a mother and two children, suffered minor injuries. The children, ages 8 and 13, were reportedly taken to a children's hospital as a precaution following the crash, according to the report.

It is not yet clear whether the teenagers will face any criminal charges stemming from the police chase and subsequent crash.

When police chases result in car accidents and injuries, the issues of liability are very complicated. It is always important to examine whether the police chase was appropriate and whether police officers followed protocol. 

Those who are injured in police chase-related car accidents in California may benefit from legal counsel. It is often possible to obtain compensation for injuries and other costs incurred as a result of the accident, but a thorough investigation is required in order to determine who should be held liable and to what extent.
