Four Newark Teens Allegedly Commit Carjacking, Crash Stolen Van

Newark NJ Carjacking AttorneysFour teenagers were arrested after allegedly crashing a carjacked motor vehicle in Newark, New Jersey.

The auto accident occurred shortly after 10:00 p.m. According to law enforcement, the teenage suspects stole the van earlier in the day. The victim told police that the suspects approached him and ordered him out of the vehicle at gunpoint.

The Newark Police Department received a report about the carjacking. A couple of Newark NJ patrol cops saw the vehicle, a 2001 Nissan Quest minivan, parked near the intersection of South 9th Street and 12th Avenue in Newark, New Jersey. When the police patrol vehicle approached the van, a 15-year-old suspect sped off with the other suspects as passengers.

Newark cops gave pursuit as the suspects allegedly tried to flee law enforcement. The chase ended a short time later when the minivan slammed into a Toyota Corolla at the intersection of South 10th Street and Central Avenue. The van then struck two more cars before flipping over on the roadway.

Three of the suspects sustained accident-related injuries that required medical attention at University Hospital.

The four suspects are all teenagers and they all live in Newark, NJ. The young suspects face very serious criminal charges for receiving stolen property. Additionally, the driver of the stolen vehicle faces charges for resisting arrest.

After being placed under arrest and processed, the suspects were remanded to the Essex County Youth Detention Center in Newark. They will have to appear in Newark Family Court at a later date in order to address the charges against them.
