BCSO: Teens led deputies on chase before crashing

Posted: Updated:

BRUNSWICK COUNTY, SC (WMBF) The Brunswick County Sheriff's Office says a 14-year-old crashed a stolen car early Saturday morning while leading deputies on a chase.

Del Routh, spokesman for the Brunswick County Sheriff's Office, said Wednesday deputies observed a vehicle making a u-turn onto Holden Beach Road around 4:30 a.m. and attempted to conduct a traffic stop.

The driver, a 14-year-old juvenile, allegedly accelerated to try to elude deputies and then flew through a stop sign without stopping. The chase continued onto Oxpen Road for a short time before the vehicle left the roadway and struck a utility pole.

When deputies came upon the vehicle, they discovered the teen and a 16-year-old passenger. Further investigation found the vehicle had been stolen from the Supply area, and one of the teens was found in possession of marijuana.

Routh said two tubes of glue were later found outside the wrecked vehicle by deputies.

Officials have not said at this time if the teens were arrested or what charges they might be facing. WMBF News will provide that information as it becomes available.
