Teens arrested after crashing car stolen from 80-year-old woman

- Last week, 80-year-old Nancy Deane was carjacked right in her own driveway.

Now, Melbourne police say they’ve found her stolen vehicle.

Police say they tried to pull over the car for an expired tag but the car sped away from them.

Eventually it crashed at the intersection of Melbourne Avenue and Babcock Street in Melbourne.

Police say there were three teenagers inside.

Two of the teens ran away but were eventually caught, treated for minor injuries, and then taken to jail.

The third teen was taken to Arnold Palmer Hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

Police say the stolen car was spray painted to disguise it, and that the tag had also been changed.

Right now the driver is charged with fleeing from police, reckless driving, and driving without a license.

The other teen who was arrested had an active warrant for another case.

Police are now trying to determine whether the teens were the ones who stole the car in the first place.
