The stolen Kia was spotted in Parson Cross during the early hours of this morning by police, who set off in pursuit.
After a brief chase, officers said it collided with an innocent member of the public before ploughing into a wall, with one of the front wheels left hanging precariously over the precipice.
South Yorkshire Police said three people had been detained on suspicion of burglary ‘after some decent running by our officers’.
It is not known at this stage whether anyone was injured in the collision.
The Star has contacted police and will attempt to bring you more information.
