WESTMINSTER, Colo. (CBS4) — Four people inside a stolen Ford F-150 were taken to a local hospital for injuries suffered in a crash Sunday morning.

According to Cheri Spottke of the Westminster Police Department, the pickup was traveling at high speed on 72nd Avenue when it clipped another car near Federal Boulevard, hit a tree and caught fire.

The crash occurred just before 9:30 a.m. and required the closure of Federal Boulevard between 72nd and 74th. The road was closed almost four hours.

A 21-year-old woman was killed last month when two alleged street racers entered a Westminster intersection and struck her car.  The two men charged in her death are in court next month.
