A 14-year-old boy has been taken to a hospital with minor injuries after he led officers on a wrong-way chase in a sport utility vehicle. Chief Deputy John Garrett, a spokesman for Precinct 1 Constable, says a cruiser spotted the Mitsubishi Montero speeding in a school zone just before 9 a.m. Monday.

The boy took off east in the westbound lane when he saw the law, eventually crashing into a parked car. Garrett says three constables then chased the boy on foot before catching him.

The boy sustained a cut lip and will be charged with evading arrest at the least.
