Lone Grove Teens Lead Police On Wild Pursuit

Posted:

A 14-year-old boy is accused of leading police and troopers on a wild pursuit through Lone Grove, Oklahoma.

It happened sometime late Saturday night or early Sunday morning. Police Chief Robert Oldham told KTEN his officers got a call of a suspicious vehicle off South Newport Road.

When officers arrived the driver of a 2004 Chevy suburban took off, leading police on a high speed pursuit through the streets of Lone Grove. Authorities say the driver crashed through a fence on Timber Road, went over a fence on Meridian and then turned down a driveway. That's when officers say the driver tried to run one of the officers over.

At one point a Lone Grove officer did fire several shots to try and disable the vehicle, but the SUV kept going. OHP Troopers also joined the pursuit.

The driver finally abandoned the beat-up suburban off Meridian Drive and fled the scene on foot.

Chief Oldham says the parents of a 14-year-old driver brought their son to the Lone Grove Police Station Sunday morning. He's believed to have taken his parents suburban and led authorities on this chase. More teenagers may have been involved.

He was released back into his parents custody. No word on if he'll face any charges.

No one was injured in the chase. Lone Grove Police are still investigating, as well as the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation.
