AURORA, Ind. (AP) – Police say a 10-year-old Indiana boy led officers on a high-speed chase before crashing his parents’ minivan.

Aurora Police say the boy was treated for minor injuries at a hospital after the Thursday morning three-mile chase and then taken to a juvenile detention center in Lawrenceburg.

The van hit several vehicles before police set out “stop sticks” to try to stop it. The boy swerved around the spikes but struck a utility pole and then stopped.

Police Chief Dana Cotton says the boy could face felony charges of auto theft and evading police.

Aurora is in southeast Indiana.
