Sgt. Eric Gripp of the Philadelphia Police Department says the stolen vehicle smashed into the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority trolley just before 9:30 a.m. Wednesday in the city’s Kingsessing section. SEPTA police chief Thomas Nestel says both occupants of the vehicle were teens. Gripp says one had to be extracted from the vehicle, and both were taken to hospitals in critical condition.
