After a chase that reached speeds of 100 mph along an interstate earlier this week, Nebraska state troopers detained a Colorado teenager driving at the age of 13.
On Monday night, a state trooper saw an SUV travelling at around 35 mph on Interstate 80 close to Kearney; however, when the policeman attempted to pull the SUV over, the driver accelerated and escaped to the east.
The chase continued at speeds of more than 100 miles per hour (161 kph) until a second state trooper used stop sticks, according to a news release from the Nebraska State Patrol. However, the Nissan Pathfinder made a detour off the highway and continued travelling, albeit at a lesser rate of speed, until a state trooper employed a cunning method to put the car to a stop, according to the authorities. The whole chase took roughly fifteen minutes.
In addition to the 11-year-old boy who was travelling in the SUV with the 13-year-old driver being detained, troopers reported finding a revolver and a small amount of marijuana inside the vehicle. The girl and kid are both from Colorado, according to the State Patrol, who withheld their names. They were kept under guardianship.
