10-Year-Old's Car Chase Is His Second Joyride in 2 Weeks

Adjust Comment Print

On Thursday morning, a 10-year-old boy was at home waiting for his sister take him to school, just like any other day.

Troopers pulled the boy out of the auto through the window.

Three Westlake officers tried to stop the boy as he drove through Lorain and Erie counties, sometimes reaching speeds of 96 miles per hour.

"Hi, um, I'm pretty sure there's like, a auto chase going on between a mum and her son on I-90 right now", one motorist told 911. In a 911 call, the mother says the auto belonged to the boy's father. That's when one trooper nudged the boy's vehicle at a slow speed into a mile post sign with his cruiser, and another cruiser blocked the auto and prevented it from re-entering the road, Hoffman said. The boy's most recent joyride was discovered by police, when they noticed a auto speed past another vehicle on Interstate I-90, just west of Cleveland.

Dashcam footage from Ohio State Highway Patrol shows cop cars pin the boy in before forcing him out of the vehicle. "At that point in time, the child swerved to the right and started driving in the ditch", said Reeder. A short time later, another driver called to report the kid was being chased by someone assumed to be his mom.

His mother arrived at the scene shortly after the crash. "You could have got killed".

Carmelo Anthony was similarly concerned, posting the same image of the plane's badly dented nose. All the players, coaches, and staff aboard the plane landed safely.

It's not the first time the boy has taken a vehicle for a joyride.

And just moments later, one of the squad cars finds an opening and drives into the side and back of the boy's vehicle, finally ending the chase.

Other motorists spotted him October 16 on Interstate 90 near West 117th Street after taking his mother's vehicle.

The boy led police on an hour-long chase of up to 160km per hour in Cleveland on Tuesday.

According to the police report, the boy said he was bored and made a decision to go for a joyride.
