WEST CHESTER, Pennsylvania (WPVI) -- Two stolen cars were involved in separate crashes in West Chester, Pa. early Tuesday morning, according to police.
The crashes happened at about 12:10 a.m. on Gay Street.
Police said the incident began when officers ran the license plate of a Subaru Outback they were following and discovered it was stolen.
The driver reportedly took off and led police on a chase for about six blocks before crashing near the intersection of East Gay Street and North Matlack Street. Police said the stolen car struck a light, along with other objects, before stopping.
At the same time, an Alfa Romeo that was following the Subaru also took off and was pursued by a second officer.
The car ended up crashing about a minute later near West Gay Street and North Darlington Street.
Police said the stolen car hit numerous other vehicles before coming to a stop.
A total of seven juveniles who were in the stolen cars, who were all from Wilmington, were taken to a nearby hospital.
"Multiple actors fled the two cars and we have injuries ranging from minor to serious. No officers and no civilians were injured and our accident reconstruction team was called in to process both scenes," said Chief James Morehead, with West Chester police.
Police said the Subaru was stolen from Wilmington and the Alfa Romeo was stolen from Malvern. Police also recovered a stolen gun.
Eight of the suspects have been arrested and one suspect remains at large.
