HOUSTON, TEXAS — A 13-year-old boy was arrested after leading Houston deputies on a high-speed chase that lasted more than 20 miles in a stolen vehicle.
It was not until the teenager crashed the vehicle that officials discovered he was only in the sixth grade, Houston-based television station KTRK reports.
The chase began after the teen was spotted going 60 mph in a 35 mph zone. Refusing to stop, he jumped on and off several Houston highways reaching speeds up to 100 miles per hour. He eventually made his way downtown, where he crashed.
The chase took a turn when a pursuing deputy crashed into another vehicle. The deputy and driver of the other vehicle were taken to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
The 13-year-old driver, who was not cooperative with detectives in telling them where he got the stolen car, was arrested and faces felony charges.
His name was not released because he is a juvenile.

— An Air Pollution Advisory is in effect today for Butler, Clark, Greene, Miami, Montgomery and Warren counties for smog.
With temperatures expected in the upper 80s with abundant sunshine and light southerly winds, conditions will be conducive for the formation of ground-level ozone, or smog, and may lead to elevated air pollution levels, according to the Regional Air Pollution Control Agency.
Children, the elderly and people with respiratory diseases should reduce prolonged or heavy exertion. Symptoms such as coughing, shortness of breath, or unusual fatigue may indicate a serious problem. Residents should contact their health care provider if any of these symptoms occur.
