A 10-year-old boy led authorities on a high-speed chase that reportedly lasted about an hour and reached speeds of 100 miles an hour.
The New York Post reports that it was the second time in two weeks that the Ohio youngster took off on a joyride.
“Dashcam video from the Ohio State Highway Patrol obtained by Cleveland.com shows the boy driving onto the right shoulder of I-80 in Milan and avoiding spike strips laid down by troopers before he’s eventually surrounded by several police vehicles, one of which clipped the car, ending the chase,” The Post reports. “The boy, who was not identified, was then pulled out of the car, which belongs to his mother’s boyfriend, through the window before kicking and spitting at the troopers, state patrol Lt. Richard Reeder told Cleveland.com.”
The boy’s mother reportedly gave chase after the boy first stole the car. After calling 911, she reportedly said: “Oh my f—— God. My son’s going to kill himself before you guys get here.”
The Post adds: “The boy then starting driving on Interstate 80, where a trooper motioned for the boy to stop as he pulled alongside him. The boy responded by shaking his head and stepping on the gas, Reeder said. The chase then culminated about an hour after it began. No injuries were reported.”
