Ashley Figueroa, who works at a nearby cell phone store, peaked out the store's front door. "I was scared," she said. "I was worried for myself. I was alone."
After the crash, the suspect jumped out of the car, tripped and fell down. He was treated at the scene and taken to jail. Because of the first collision, he faces potential hit-and-run charges as well as felony evading and charges related to the stolen vehicle.
At the crash scene, Elijah was able to get out of his car as well. He said he was feeling good, but told reporters, "I just wish you didn’t hit my car… I wish you would’ve done that somewhere else."
