A four-wheeled ATV slammed into a police car tonight in Philadelphia's Grays Ferry section. The trouble didn't end there for the driver. Police say the 19-year old man tried to get away on foot.

But he slipped while trying to hop a wrought iron fence and impaled himself.

Medics carefully removed him and took him to Thomas Jefferson Hospital where he is listed in critical condition.

He was wanted on 22 driving violations.
