Authorities say the vehicle was taken from the Ridley Township Wawa on Morton Avenue on Tuesday afternoon. That’s when police say two suspects, ages 17 and 18, confronted someone and took their vehicle, leading police on a wild chase.

Drivers Eyewitness News talked to are stunned.

“Makes my stomach turn,” Steve Kelly said.

“That’s pretty scary thinking that could happen to you,” Alondra Rodriguez said.
