A teacher was injured Monday morning when, according to troopers, three teens driving a stolen car crashed into her SUV near an Orlando high school.
The teens, a 17-year-old driver and two 18-year-old passengers, were taken into custody after the crash, which occurred around 6:50 a.m. at Silver Star Road and Kingsland Avenue.
Stephanie Robbins, 33, of Winter Garden, a science teacher at Evans High School, was taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center with minor injuries, officials said.
According to the Florida Highway Patrol, a 2003 Mitsubishi stolen from the Fountain Auto Mall on Orange Blossom Trail was traveling westbound on Silver Star at a high rate of speed and crashed into Robbins' Jeep.
The Orange County Sheriff's Office detained the teens, who face criminal charges in the theft of the vehicle.
Troopers, who continue to investigate the crash, said the driver of the stolen car also faces charges of reckless driving and driving without a license.
A fuel leak forced officials to close Silver Star Road, but it was later reopened.
