Four people were seriously injured Tuesday morning in a crash involving a stolen pickup truck on Northwest 27th Avenue and 88th Street, according to Miami-Dade police.

The three men and one woman involved all were airlifted to Ryder Trauma Center and are in stable condition.

By Tuesday night police named the injured: Percy Williams, 19, Kristen Jackson, 25, Eduardo Cumba, 24 and Jonathan Johnson, 24.

Northwest 27th Avenue was shut down in both directions.

According to Miami-Dade police, a black Dodge Charger driven by Williams was heading north on 27th and violently interrupted the Ford pickup truck's left turn from southbound 27th Avenue to 88th Street. The truck rolled 20 yards as both passengers — Cumba and Johnson — were ejected. The Charger, which was also carrying Jackson, swung right, into the gate of Best Used Trucks' car lot.

A gun was found in the trunk of the Charger. The truck had been stolen from the area.
