RICHMOND, Va. -- Police are investigating a car theft and crash in Richmond's Union Hill neighborhood Monday night.

A food delivery driver was delivering sushi to a home on East Main Street, when a suspect hopped in his vehicle and took off.

The driver told CBS 6 reporter Laura French that he just went to the customer's door and when he turned around the suspect was in the vehicle. He said he tried to stop him, but it was too late.

The driver said he left his keys in the ignition of the vehicle.

When the driver took off from the scene, he didn't make it very far before crashing at N 22nd St & M St, in Union Hill. The suspect flipped the stolen vehicle and crashed into one vehicle that ended up on top of another.
