The San Jose Mercury News reports that a police pursuit ended in a San Jose car accident involving two vehicles.

The incident started when a police officer observed a vehicle turn at a red signal, although it was prohibited. The officer turned on his lights to attempt to get the vehicle to stop, but the driver sped away.

The driver of the vehicle then ran through another light and broadsided a Mitsubishi. The Mitsubishi was hit with such force in the San Jose car accident that it nearly split in two. A 15-year-old passenger was flung from the car into the street.

Six people were injured in the San Jose car accident, and the 15-year-old is in critical condition.
