The accident happened at 555 Riverside Avenue, at the Exxon Gas Station near the Lyndhurst Bridge around 8:30 a.m. following a high-speed police chase that police ended due to safety concerns when speeds hit 100 miles per hour.
An 18-year-old driver crashed the vehicle, allegedly stolen from Elizabeth, into a gas pump pillar.
His passenger, a 17-year-old girl, was taken to the hospital in Hackensack with serious injuries.
