NORFOLK, VA — Two teenagers, ages 19 and 17, face charges following a police pursuit and crash last Monday in Norfolk that left them and one other person injured, reports WAVY.
The wreck took place in the 1800 block of East Brambleton Avenue some time after 2:22 p.m., when a Norfolk Police officer spotted a stolen vehicle in the Campostella area.
Authorities say the driver of the stolen car, a 19-year-old woman, fled an attempted traffic stop, prompting a police chase. The fleeing vehicle ultimately crashed and rolled over, causing a tire to detach and strike an uninvolved car.
The driver and a 17-year-old male passenger of the stolen vehicle tried to flee the scene on foot but were apprehended. They were transported to a hospital for unspecified injuries, along with the driver of the victim vehicle, who sustained non-life-threatening injuries.
The 19-year-old driver driver, who was booked into Norfolk City Jail without bond, faces multiple charges, including “grand larceny, two counts of delinquency of a minor, child neglect, eluding police, and driving without a license.”
Detectives have also charged the 17-year-old male passenger for his role in the incident, though those charges remain undisclosed.
