Stolen car slams into parked vehicles after high-speed chase in Brooklyn

COBBLE HILL, Brooklyn (WABC) -- Authorities say a stolen car being chased by police crashed into parked vehicles on a street in Brooklyn Tuesday.

At about 12:30 p.m., police received a report of a white car stolen in the 72nd Precinct.

The vehicle took police on a high-speed chase through several precincts.

The driver lost control at the intersection of Pacific Street and Henry Street in Cobble Hill, and struck six or seven parked cars.

A 58-year-old passenger in the stolen vehicle was arrested but the driver fled on foot, police said. There were no reports of injuries.

Pacific Street was closed in the area as the search continued for the driver.

The parked cars took the brunt of the crash and prevented the stolen car from jumping onto the sidewalk where many children were out on the mild day.
