MILWAUKEE -- Two people are in serious condition after the stolen car they were in crashed.

It happened around 7:40 p.m. Sunday near N. 42nd St. and W. Fairmount Ave.

Police say the driver of a stolen Toyota Camry was heading northbound on 42nd and blew through the stop sign. The Camry collided with a Chrysler 300, which then struck an Infinity. The stolen car only stopped when it hit a home on the northwest corner of the intersection.

Both people inside the Camry, a 16-year-old boy an a man of unknown age, were seriously injured. Two others suffered what police believe to be non-life threatening injuries.

Steps away from the crash, Arnold Jackson was doing yard work for his neighbor.

"By the time I heard the boom boom, I looked up, I saw the car hitting the house. You see your life flashing, you know. Everyone wants to know if you're okay.  I'm like 'yes, but that car is on fire.'"

Police say their investigation is ongoing.
