Teen steals parents’ car, crashes in ditch after police chase

Print Article

MOSES LAKE — A 14-year-old Moses Lake boy was arrested Wednesday night after leading state troopers on a six-mile-long chase in his parents’ car, which he ultimately crashed into a ditch off Interstate 90, police officials said.

Police were notified shortly before 8:30 p.m. Wednesday that the juvenile had taken his parents’ 2001 Volkswagen from the 1900 block of South Dilley Avenue. While Moses Lake police were compiling a report on the stolen vehicle, a Washington State Patrol trooper located the vehicle traveling eastbound on I-90 near exit 182 and began a pursuit.

Six miles later, the teen left the interstate at exit 188 but failed to negotiate the curve, driving into a ditch near Road U Southeast. The vehicle suffered reportable damage and was taken in by Central Towing.

The teen was taken to Samaritan Hospital for minor injuries before being arrested on charges of eluding police, taking a car without permission and operating a vehicle without a license.
