MILWAUKEE -- A Milwaukee teen using a wheelchair after a stolen car crash is pleading for his peers to stop stealing cars.
 
16-year-old Ronnie Jackson is sharing his trouble with the law to prevent others from making a life-ending mistake.
 
He has a long road ahead of him, after the stolen Toyota Camry he was riding in blew a stop sign and caused a violent chain reaction crash on July 31.
His pelvis was shattered.
 
The teen has more surgery ahead of him, as he prepares for the consequences of his actions.
 
After he gets better, he hopes to show Milwaukee children the positive things to do in our city.
"I want us Milwaukee people to come together and we can stop this, and we can stop kids from being in stolen cars and ruining their lives," said Jackson.
 
Jackson's family tells us he has been charged in with operating a vehicle without owners consent.
 
He goes to juvenile court next month.
