Teens injured in stolen car crash

A 13-year-old driver and his four teenage passengers have been hospitalised after smashing into a tree in a stolen car east of Melbourne overnight.

Victoria Police spokeswoman Kate Millar said the Nissan Pulsar, which police believe was stolen from Mount Waverley, was driving south on Esther Crescent in Mooroolbark about 1am on Sunday when it crashed.

The boy driving had to be cut from the car after police found him trapped behind the wheel. The boy, from Pakenham, was taken to hospital with minor injuries.

Ambulance Victoria spokesman Ray Rowe said three of the passengers – two girls and a boy aged between 13 and 16 years – were taken to a number of hospitals. 

The five teenagers are expected to be charged with theft of a motor car and other driving offences.
