MARION, Iowa (AP) - Authorities in northeast Iowa say a 14-year-old boy was hospitalized over the weekend after leading police on a chase.
Waterloo television station KWWL reports a Marion police officer tried to stop a vehicle early Sunday morning that went over a curb and onto a sidewalk. The driver refused to stop the car and started the pursuit.
Officers chased the car for 12 miles until the teen lost control and crashed. He was taken to Mercy Medical Center in Cedar Rapids with non-life-threatening injuries. Police say it's unclear if he's still in the hospital.
Police Chief Harry Daugherty says charges are pending.
