FOREST PARK, Ill. – A suburban carjacking ended in a crash Wednesday afternoon.

It all started when a group of eight suspects stole a 2016 Infinity from a residential driveway in Elmhurst around 3:15 p.m. Wednesday. While the resident attempted to confront them, the suspects drove off, hitting another vehicle as they sped away.

Elmhurst police say they were able to apprehend seven of the individuals near 2nd and Addison after a foot chase, but a female driver continued on.

That's when Forest Park police say they spotted the stolen vehicle as it exited 290 and headed westbound on Jackson. The driver lost control at a curve, and then crashed into an apartment building.

The driver bailed out of the car and tried to run from officers, but they were able to catch and arrest her.

There was actually someone in this apartment unit when the car crashed into it, but luckily they were not hurt.
