CHICAGO (CBS) — A car with two children inside was stolen by a 13-year-old boy in Humboldt Park on Wednesday night, only to crash shortly after, police said.

At 4:30 p.m., a 26-year-old woman was working for a food delivery service when she got out of her car and into the 600 block of North Christiana Avenue near Ohio Street. There were two children – a 4-year-old girl and a 7-year-old boy – inside the car.

Shortly after, the boy jumped out of the car while it was still driving and fled, police said.

The car went over a curb and hit a fence.

The 13-year-old boy was taken into custody shortly thereafter. No injuries were reported.
