Wash. officials: Impaired teen crashes into 4 cars

BELLINGHAM, Wash. (AP) — The Washington State Patrol says an apparently intoxicated 14-year-old boy led a trooper on a short car chase before crashing into four vehicles.

Trooper Keith Leary says the trooper noticed a 2009 Pontiac weaving and traveling 20 mph under the 50 mph speed limit early Wednesday. When the trooper turned on his emergency lights, the driver sped up, zipping into a Bellingham apartment complex and colliding with the other cars.

The Bellingham Herald reports (http://is.gd/iRWT1Q ) that the short chase reached speeds of 60 mph in a 25 mph zone.

The 14-year-old driver was booked into juvenile detention for investigation of DUI, eluding and taking a car without the owner’s permission.

Leary says the passengers included two 12-year-olds, a 15-year-old and a 53-year-old man. He described all but one 12-year-old as extremely intoxicated.

Authorities are still investigating.
