A motorist reported at 9:16 a.m. that a silver car driven by a juvenile was being chased by a red car, possibly operated by his mother.

Three Westlake officers tried to stop the silver car, which failed to pull over and continued west.

The car's speed reached 96 miles per hour as it passed through Lorain and Erie counties.

Once it entered the Ohio Turnpike, Ohio State Highway Patrol took over the pursuit.

The boy was in custody at about 9:50 p.m. near the 118 milepost. Police say the boy kicked at and spit at troopers.

No decisions on any charges have been made.

 

 

Last week, the boy took the car and was found on the side of Interstate 90 with three flat tires.

Callers told 911 last week they saw the child driving at a high rate of speed.

In that incident, a police report states the boy told officers he was bored and took the car.
