Underage driver, passenger survive airborne crash

A high speed chase involving two teens in a stolen car ended with the car crashing into a wall
Authorities say a high-speed chase in west Houston ended in after the suspects' car went airborne and crashed into a wall.

It happened on Highway 6 at I-10. A precinct 5 deputy constable attempted to pull over the vehicle because the headlights were not on.

The driver of the car then led deputies on a high speed chase, hitting speeds of 90 to 100 mph. The driver eventually lost control, causing the car to spin out and go airborne into a wall.


Constables say the driver and passenger, who are both 15 years old, were trapped inside the vehicle. Firefighters rescued both teens and paramedics took them to the hospital. Constables aren't releasing the condition of the teens but say they were talking when they were transported to the hospital.

The car they were driving had been reported stolen earlier in the day. Deputies say it was also involved in an aggravated robbery off the south Sam Houston Parkway Wednesday afternoon.

Deputies found a gun in the glove compartment and what they describe as a "gangster style pull down head garment." Constables are working to determine who those items belong to.

Charges against the two teens are pending.
