The search is on for a teenage boy who police say stole two cars, crashing one of them in a matter of minutes.

The alleged joy rides ended around 6 p.m. Thursday at the Ridge Avenue ramps in the East Falls section of Philadelphia.

That's where, police say, the suspect drove the wrong way and slammed into an oncoming car.

He jumped out and ran away. He remains at large.

Police say moments before the same suspect was spotted in a different stolen car, driving erratically near Roxborough High School.
