HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

Police in Hartford are looking for whoever was in a car that burst into flames after an early morning crash.

According to police, the crash happened just before 4:15 a.m. on Friday at the corner of Trumbull and Main streets, right across from Dunkin' Donuts Park.

Eyewitness News was first on the scene.

Deputy Chief Brian Foley reported on Friday afternoon that one of the police department's crime centers caught the crash on camera.

"Car speeds, flips, burns," Foley said. "Then three [juveniles] run from the car, shocked to be alive."

Police said the driver knocked out concrete barriers and flipped the car over onto a median.

The vehicle then caught fire.

No one in the car when firefighters arrived. The occupants had fled at some point. Police are trying to figure out who had been in it.

Eyewitnesses reported hearing tires screeches before the crash.

Since the vehicle ended up on a median, it did not affect traffic in the area.

It took crews about an hour and half to clear to scene.

The investigation continues.
