A 10-year-old Ohio boy led police on a high-speed car chase after stealing the family car for the second time and speeding down the Ohio Turnpike on Thursday morning.

The boy, who is from the Cleveland area, took the car around 8:30 a.m. on Thursday as he was waiting for his older sister to take him to school, the New York Daily News reported.

Police were alerted to a car that was speeding and swerving in and out of traffic, nearly running several cars off the road and being chased by a red SUV, The Associated Press reported.

The chase went on for about 20 miles until the boy slowed down to drive on the grassy median to avoid driving over stop sticks, which would puncture the tires.

Police arrested the boy about an hour later after a chase with speeds exceeding 100 miles per hour.

There were no injuries involved in the chase.

“It was very lucky no one was hurt,” Highway Patrol Sergeant Tim Hoffman said, the AP reported.

The boy spent the night in jail after being taken to the hospital to be evaluated. According to the AP, he will be placed with Erie County Children’s Services while the patrol decides whether to file criminal charges against him for the incident. 

The 10-year-old had previously stolen his mother’s car Oct. 16 and was stopped on I-90 in Cleveland in a high-speed lane with three flat tires, a police report said. He told police he took the car because he was bored, Fox8 reported.

The boy allegedly spit at and kicked police when they were trying to arrest him, Fox8 said.
