11-year-old steals his mom’s car, leads police on high-speed chase ending in crash

Local News

Police in Cleveland, Ohio, are surprised to find out who was behind the wheel of a speeding SUV involved in a high-speed chase. 

Within seconds after spotting the vehicle in Brooklyn, Ohio, the chase was on.  The driver ran red lights and even turned the headlights off to avoid detection.  After reaching speeds of over 75mph, police called off the chase.  The driver was later captured after crashing into a parked pick-up truck.  

The driver?  An 11-year-old boy who took his mother’s car after she went to sleep. 

Police later discovered the boy was the same kid who led troopers on a 50-mile chase last October.

The boy was treated and then released from the hospital.  He faces felony charges in Juvenile Court.
