SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio police are searching for a teenage driver who used a stolen pickup to ram a patrol car in a West Side neighborhood.

They quickly tracked down three teenage girls who they believe were passengers in the truck, but also are still looking for another passenger who got away.

Police say the incident began with an attempted traffic stop around 4 a.m. Thursday.

They say an officer had noticed the pickup speeding and running red lights in the area near Highway 90 and General Hudnell.

When he attempted to stop the vehicle, the driver took off, ultimately running into a dead end on Darby Boulevard.

Police say the driver of the pickup then backed into the patrol car, hitting it on the rear passenger’s side.

All five people in the pickup scattered, police said.

Officers later found three girls hiding under a house about a block away from the crash scene.

They conducted a search of the area for two teenage boys—the driver and a passenger-- but they did not find them.

The officer whose car was rammed was not hurt, police said.

Police say the pickup involved in the incident was stolen, and when officers searched it, they found it full of beer.
