CHESAPEAKE, Va. (AP) - Virginia state police say a 14-year-old boy led police on a pre-dawn high-speed chase in a stolen vehicle.

A state trooper patrolling Interstate 64 East in Chesapeake saw a 2016 Dodge Caravan pass his marked vehicle just before 3:15 a.m. Sunday.

Police said the driver was going 114 miles per hour in a 55 miles-per-hour zone.

The pursuit continued through streets in Chesapeake, Virginia Beach and Norfolk before the Caravan struck a police vehicle, causing the Caravan to spin out of control.

A 14-year-old male driver was taken into custody, along with five other juveniles who were passengers in the vehicle.
