Ohio Boy, 13, Accused of Leading Officers on Chase

Posted: Updated:

AKRON, Ohio (AP) - Police in northeast Ohio say a 13-year-old boy stole a pickup truck, led police on a high-speed chase and rammed a cruiser.

It started Sunday afternoon in Akron when a police officer tried to stop a pickup truck that was driving the wrong way down a street. The truck took off, leading officers on a chase that reached 80 mph.

At one point, the pickup truck backed up and rammed a cruiser. The chase ended when it drove through a fence and crashed into a truck in a parking lot.

The Akron Beacon Journal (http://bit.ly/18t8vo2) reports that the boy was treated at a hospital for minor injuries. Police said he had an outstanding warrant for assault in a prior incident.

The truck had been stolen from an apartment complex.
