Four people who were inside the deli, including a pregnant woman, suffered non-life-threatening injuries. Check out surveillance video from inside the store here.

An 18-year-old suspect was driving a 2017 Nissan Pathfinder Tuesday that had been stolen in Philadelphia Monday. The suspect was driving about 100 mph northbound on Frankford Avenue around 7:30 p.m. when he suddenly lost control of the vehicle, investigators said. He crashed into several other cars before slamming into the Frankford Deli at Frankford Avenue and Tioga Street.

Four people, including a 19-year-old woman who is 5-months pregnant, were inside the deli during the crash. She and other employees dived behind a counter to avoid being hit, police said.

All four were taken to the hospital. Their injuries don’t appear to be life-threatening, police said.

Police apprehended the 18-year-old driver of the stolen SUV and took him into custody, investigators said.

Police searched for several other young people who got out of the stolen vehicle and ran away after it crashed. No other arrests have been made, however.
