Police release video of I-26 car chase involving child in stolen SUV

NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Authorities have released dash camera video of police officers chasing a 12-year-old boy in an SUV on Interstate 26.

Goose Creek police say the juvenile stole an SUV Thursday afternoon and led them on a chase into North Charleston.

Newly released video appears to show the chase starting on St. James Avenue in Goose Creek and ending in North Charleston. At one point in the video, the SUV is seen driving off the roadway and traveling on a dirt road.

According to Lieutenant Karen Nix with the Goose Creek Police Department, officers received reports of a hit-and-run in the parking lot of Walmart on St. James Avenue around 5:45 p.m.

Nix said officers were traveling east on Highway 176 near Thomason Boulevard when they saw the hit-and-run suspect's SUV, a 2005 Mercury Mariner which had been reported stolen.

Officers tried to pull the SUV over, but police said the juvenile behind the wheel ignored their commands and proceeded to Highway 52 and onto Interstate 26.

Nix said the juvenile continued east on I-26 into North Charleston, where North Charleston Police Department officers laid down stop sticks near Remount Road.

The juvenile was able to maneuver around the first set of sticks, but Nix said North Charleston police deployed another set of stop sticks just past the Montague Avenue exit.

The SUV's tires blew out and the 12-year-old was taken into custody. He is charged with possessing a stolen vehicle, failure to stop for blue lights, leaving the scene of an accident involving an unattended vehicle, and driving without a license.

Police took the boy to the Goose Creek Police Department before he was turned over to his guardians. He is scheduled to be taken to Columbia on Friday.
