The remains of a bus stop destroyed during a police chase Monday at Olson Memorial Highway and Penn Avenue North in Minneapolis. At least five people, including several minors, were hospitalized after a vehicle attempting to evade police crashed into a north Minneapolis bus stop Monday afternoon.

The driver of a stolen Kia that crashed and destroyed a north Minneapolis bus stop Monday was a 12-year-old boy, while the other passengers were slightly older.

The ages of the driver and five teenage passengers, who were hospitalized after driving and crashing the silver SUV, were released Tuesday by the Hennepin County Sheriff's Office. The Kia struck another SUV on Olson Highway and Penn Avenue, then slammed into a Metro Transit bus shelter and also hit a man waiting at the shelter around noon, authorities said Monday.

The other passengers were four boys, one age 14 and three 15, and one 16-year-old girl, Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Kelsey Demmert said.
