KENSINGTON, Brooklyn (WABC) -- Police are searching for the suspect who crashed a stolen vehicle into several parked cars in Brooklyn on Tuesday afternoon.
The crash happened on East 7th Street around 12:45 p.m.
The stolen white Mercedes carved a trail of destruction through Brooklyn traffic, witnesses say, and did thousands of dollars' worth of damage along the way.
The owner of the stolen car, Edgar Gonzalez, said he had just stopped to grab some lunch.
"And within two minutes I came out of the store and the car was gone, like, I unfortunately left the keys in it," Gonzalez said.
He also left his phone inside, which he said the suspect tossed out.
Witnesses said they heard a loud thud and saw a white car that crashed into parked cars before someone got out and ran away like a "track star."
They said the suspect was bleeding from the face as he got away.
It did not appear anyone else was injured, but at least half a dozen other cars were damaged.
No arrests have been made and the investigation is ongoing.
