According to Newburgh Heights Police Department reports, an officer began following a black Kia heading eastbound on Harvard Avenue on December 18.
The vehicle then made a quick turn onto East 55th Street. That is when an officer tried to conduct a traffic stop, but the vehicle sped off toward Fleet Ave., going around stopped traffic at E. 55th St. and turning onto Fleet Ave.
The vehicle then went left of the island in front of the BP gas station and ran over the concrete median. It hit another vehicle on East 49th Street.
The Kia sped away again and almost hit a police cruiser head-on.
When the suspects tried to make a left turn onto Washington Park Boulevard it collided with the Cleveland MetroParks sign, which caused the driver to flip the vehicle, according to police reports.
A 15-year-old and 16-year-old got out from the passenger side of the Kia and fled on foot toward East 47th Street.
Officers were able to tase one suspect and the other suspect came back. He complied with the officer’s commands.
The 15-year-old told police someone sold the vehicle to him.
Both suspects were taken to MetroHealth Medical Center.
The vehicle was later confirmed to be stolen out of Cleveland
