Juvenile arrested after police chase
A 15-year-old male was arrested Sunday morning on multiple charges after a police pursuit of a stolen vehicle.
At 6:55 a.m. Sunday, deputies with the Washington County Sheriffs Office responded to a report of a reckless driver at Heritage Village Mobile Park in Aloha. Upon locating the vehicle, deputies learned the 1998 Dodge Durango had been reported stolen. When deputies attempted to stop the Dodge, the vehicle sped away. Pursuit of the vehicle ensued through Aloha, onto Highway 26 and into Hillsboro. During the pursuit, the suspect rammed a patrol car, then continued his attempt to flee. At the intersection of Southwest Imlay Avenue and Southwest Tualatin Valley Highway, the suspect drove the Durango into the shoulder, rolling the SUV. The vehicle came to rest upright on the highway. As deputies moved in to perform a high risk stop, the suspect accelerated and rammed a second patrol car. The juvenile was transported to the hospital with injuries that were not expected to be life threatening. Injuries to the deputies were also minor. The juvenile has been charged with unlawful use of a vehicle, reckless endangering, felony attempt to elude, identity theft, theft I and fraudulent use of a credit card.
He was lodged at Donald E. Long Juvenile Detention Facility.JW_DISQUS_ADD_A_COMMENT
