WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (AP) — A stolen Tesla speeding through Los Angeles-area streets went out of control and was torn in half in a fiery crash with other vehicles that injured its driver and six other people.

The crash early Friday left the back end of the electric car wedged between two walls of a synagogue in West Hollywood and the front end down the street among other wrecked cars and a toppled traffic signal.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department says the Tesla driver was ejected and originally thought to have died, but was resuscitated by paramedics. One of the six victims was listed in critical condition.

The Tesla was reported stolen shortly before 1 a.m. in Los Angeles. Police Officer Christopher No says officers briefly gave chase until their patrol car crashed.
