OAKLAND, Calif. -- Surveillance video captured a dramatic high speed crash in Oakland Monday where a woman driving a stolen Jeep slammed into another car, narrowly missed a pedestrian.
The collision happened around Noon at the intersection of Foothill Boulevard and 36th Avenue.
The video from a nearby store, The A & R Market, shows a pedestrian approaching the intersection as the vehicles collide. By the angle of the camera it looks like the man would be seriously injured, but he escaped unharmed.
Police confirm the Jeep involved in the collision was stolen moments earlier from a nearby driveway. The owner of the stolen SUV came running into the market.
"He said he left it outside his house, running, went inside his house to get something and when he came out, the truck was gone," said Ali Alhaithani, store owner.
The driver of the stolen vehicle died on scene and an autopsy is scheduled to identify her. Police said she was not carrying identification.
The 41-year-old female driver of the Honda hit head-on in the collision was taken to a local hospital, but not seriously injured.
The woman's sister came to the market to watch the video and could not believe she survived.
"I was in shock. I though she was dead. He said somebody died and the way the car looked," said Elizabeth Prieto.
