Teen leads police pursuit on I-95 in Va.

SPOTSYLVANIA COUNTY, Va. (WUSA9) -- Virginia State Police say a 15-year-old boy was involved with a hit-and-run and led officers on a high speed chase Sunday morning on I-95.

Police say they attempted to stop a white Dodge multi-passenger van around 9:30 a.m. on I-95 at the Caroline County-Spotsylvania County line. The van had been traveling north at a high rate of speed on I-95, and police say it had been involved in a hit-and-run at the 104 mile marker in Caroline County.

When a trooper attempted to stop the van, the suspect vehicle refused to stop and a pursuit was initiated, police say.

During the pursuit on I-95 north, the suspect tried to ram a trooper's vehicle, causing the trooper's vehicle to run off the road and strike the guardrail. At the 128 mile marker, the suspect rammed a second trooper's vehicle before losing control of his own vehicle on overturning in the highway.

The 15-year-old male driver of the van was transported to a hospital for minor injuries. Investigation revealed that the van was reported stolen earlier Sunday morning in Chesterfield County.

Charges are pending and the investigation remains ongoing.
