A postal worker was injured after she was involved in a car crash with a 13-year-old boy driving a pickup truck.

The collision happened around 4:20 p.m. in Angelino Heights when the teen ran through a stop sign in his sister's truck that he had taken for a joyride without her permission, according to Eastsider LA and KTLA. The impact caused the 30-something-year-old woman to be ejected through her windshield and then pinned under her vehicle when it overturned on its side.

The juvenile fled from the scene, but was soon found and booked on felony hit-and-run charges, according to CBS Los Angeles. The postal carrier was taken to a hospital to be treated for her head and hip injuries.
