    SkyForce10 was over the scene of a delivery truck crash in Philadelphia Thursday afternoon.

    Police say the FedEx truck was stolen from Ridge and Lehigh avenues just before 1:30.

    One witness says the FedEx driver told her he was delivering packages when someone jumped into his truck and sped off.

    Not long after, the suspect crashed the vehicle into a telephone pole at 25th and Willard streets.

    The driver jumped from the delivery truck and ran, according to witnesses. 

    Police apprehended the man a block from the crash scene.

    The company released this statement:

    “FedEx Ground is aware of the incident in Philadelphia, and we extend our thanks to the local law enforcement who apprehended the suspects. We will continue to fully cooperate during this time.”
