(Newser) – A Los Angeles man who managed to steal a police cruiser early this morning took it on a joyride, only to crash into another vehicle, a light post, and a Starbucks (all at once). He lost both legs in the accident, but, fortunately, no one else was hurt. Police are still investigating how the 25- to- 30-year-old man was able to take the police car. The Los Angeles Times has a picture of the crash scene.
