PITTSBURGH - A man who was waiting for a bus in Pittsburgh's North Side Sunday night was struck by a sport utility vehicle involved in a police chase, officials said.

Pittsburgh police said the chase began when they spotted the SUV that was reported stolen.

Investigators said they chased the car filled with teenagers to a bus stop on Perrysville Avenue, where the driver lost control and hit a man waiting at a bus stop.

People who live nearby said they could feel the impact of the car hitting into a nearby pole.

"All of a sudden [there was] a big bang and it shook the whole building. I saw the tree coming at the front door," said witness Michelle Greer.

The man who was hit at the bus stop was not hurt and was able to catch the bus he was waiting for. No other injuries were reported.

Police said the teens ran from the scene after the crash and two were arrested shortly after.

Their names were not released. It was not immediately clear what charges they may face.
