UPDATE: Shortly before 5:15 p.m. Friday, Davenport Police, Fire and Medic EMS responded to the intersection of Locust and Gaines streets.

Preliminary investigation indicates a Honda Civic was headed south on Gaines trying to make a left turn onto Locust when it was struck by a stolen Kia Sorento headed west on Locust, a news release says.

Suspects from the Kia ran from the scene.

A 17-year-old boy driving the Civic was the only one in that vehicle. He was taken to a local hospital for treatment of serious, life-threatening injuries and was later transported to University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, the release says.
