MIDTOWN, Manhattan (WABC) -- A man is facing charges after crashing a stolen car in Midtown on Monday morning.
A 69-year-old driver was parked on 55th Street and Broadway with his car unlocked and running around 11 a.m.
Police say Terrence Brooks, 37, opened the car's back door, like he was a passenger, which scared the driver and caused him to jump out.
Brooks then climbed through the vehicle and sat himself in the driver's seat before driving away.
He didn't get far. After running a red light, he crashed into a taxi and another vehicle, police say.
Brooks got out and started talking to police before running away and climbing onto a moving car until he was finally taken into custody.
He was charged with grand larceny auto and reckless driving.
