ELYRIA, Ohio – Authorities reportedly arrested a male teenager and his 18-year-old passenger Wednesday afternoon following a chase by a State Highway Patrol trooper.

A news release states the 15-year-old boy was pulled over about 1 p.m. on Murray Ridge Road in Elyria Township by a state trooper because the teen was allegedly speeding in a 2004 Toyota Camry.

Soon after he was pulled over, the teen allegedly sped away from the officer, heading east on Leo Bullocks Parkway.

After the driver realized that the road was closed ahead, he took a U-turn and headed west on the road while the trooper chase the vehicle.

The patrol said the trooper determined that the Camry was stolen from an Elyria Township home and continued to follow the car.

The teen allegedly drove roughly in a rectangle, north on Murray Ridge Road onto Lowell Street, and then through various side streets before heading south on West River Road.

The car eventually drove onto Infirmary Road and failed to negotiate a turn. The car reportedly smashed into a chain-link fence and another vehicle, and the teen driver ran away from the crash.

The patrol said the chase reached speeds of about 80 mph and spanned about 5.5 miles.

The 18-year-old passenger, identified as Isaiah Makuch, stayed in the car and was arrested without incident.

He is charged with obstructing official business, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, possession of marijuana and drug trafficking, the patrol said. He is in Lorain County Jail.

Authorities reportedly found the teenage driver hiding in the bathroom of a house on Middle Avenue, more than one mile away from the crash scene.

He was arrested and charged with receiving stolen property, fleeing and eluding, failure to comply and various traffic violations. He is currently in the Lorain County Juvenile Detention Center.
