GILPIN, Pa. (AP) — Police in western Pennsylvania believe a 14-year-old was high on drugs when she took her mother’s car with four other teens and led officers on a chase before crashing.
Gilpin Police Chief Chris Fabec told The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review he pursued the vehicle as it weaved through traffic in no-passing zones at speeds up to 70 mph early Monday.
The car veered off the road, went down an incline and stopped in a wooded area.
The five teens in the car started to run off, but Fabec says they stopped when he ordered them to do so.
The driver faces juvenile charges including reckless driving and driving under the influence of drugs. Her name was not released because of her age.
No one was injured.
