Teen Leads Cops on Wild Chase in Stolen Dump Truck
It was one of the most bizarre police chases ever. A stolen Mack dump truck was being driven in reverse at high speeds through a town in Ohio.
The teenager at the wheel couldn't see where he's going, but that didn't stop him.
Moments later, he careens into another police vehicle, and then another.
Then he suddenly stops, and out jumps a 13-year-old girl, and a 15-year-old boy. They apparently had enough of the escapade. They were arrested immediately.
The driver, now alone in the truck, continues to flee. At least now he's driving in the right direction.
Police say he threw bricks and other projectiles at them out of the window. They exploded into dust as they hit the highway. Then a tarp came flying at police.
Incredibly the chase continues for 52 miles before the driver crashes into a guardrail and he is cornered by police and K-9 units.
The 17-year-old driver who already had a suspended license was taken into custody and charged with a number of felonies.
