A teenager accused of stealing a vehicle, fleeing from a trooper during a traffic stop, then crashing into an Orlando-area apartment is facing several charges, the Florida Highway Patrol reported Wednesday.

The video shows the teen attempt to fake out the police officer by pulling over to the road and then taking off quickly. The young, inexperienced driver crashes into a house and knocks down a transformer.

A series of sparks ensue, met with a moment of stillness and then a startling loud and bright explosion ensued. [Click the video, it’s wild]

The Orlando Sentinel reports that the 16-year-old teen and an unidentified passenger then ran off, but police found the driver injured, not too far from the scene.

The woman inside the home had to be transported with injuries.
