LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles police say a man who stole a police car lost a leg after smashing it into a light pole and a Starbucks cafe.
The 25-year-old is hospitalized Friday morning in critical condition.
Officer Tenesha Dobine says the car was stolen shortly before 4 a.m. as police were investigating a report of an assault with a deadly weapon and robbery in the southwest area of town.
She says a supervisor left the keys in the car and a man jumped in and took off on a joyride.
He sped north on La Brea Avenue for several minutes before crashing into the pole and building.
The patrol car was totaled.
Nobody else was hurt.
