The getaway driver fleeing the scene of a theft at the King of Prussia Mall lost control, slammed into a brick wall and ended up in the hospital along with four other suspects Wednesday afternoon.

After they sped away from the mall in a black Monte Carlo at about 12:20 p.m., Upper Merion Township police spotted the suspects trying to ditch evidence in a nearby business parking lot.

When the suspects realized police were nearby, they fled the area barreling along South Gulph Road.

Police said the driver lost control near Lewis Road, and the car zoomed across a parking lot then slammed into the corner of a business.

The identities of the suspects have not been released by police. Officials said criminal charges are pending, and they are continuing to investigate the incident.
