A stolen car raced through a red traffic light and crashed into another vehicle in Garden Grove Friday morning, resulting in serious injuries to a woman.

According to Cpl. Paul Ashby of the GGPD, the incident took place shortly before 11 a.m. in the area of Magnolia Street and Stanford Avenue.

A gold Toyota – which had been reported stolen in Anaheim earlier in the day – moving northbound on Magnolia ran the red light and collided with a Chevrolet Suburban sport utility vehicle.

Right after the crash, three people – two males and a female – were seen fleeing the area on foot south on Magnolia. Officers located the 23-year-old female, who had been a passenger in the Toyota. She was taken to UCI Medical Center in Orange for treatment of  “serious head injuries.”

The driver of the Chevrolet sustained minor injuries. The two males from the Toyota are being sought by police. Witnesses to the collision are asked to contact Traffic Investigator Ashby at (714) 741-5823.
