The boy reportedly stole the keys to his mother's boyfriend's vehicle while waiting for his sister to drive him to school.

Police attempted to pull him over; however, the boy refused the authorities' demands, and the chase was on, according to Cleveland.com.

The mom hopped in her vehicle and followed her son calling 911 for help. On of the trooper's cruisers struck the vehicle from behind, making the child take a sharp turn and hit another trooper's cruiser, ending the chase. State police picked up the pursuit when the child entered Interstate 80. Police said the boy drove west on Interstate 90, fled from Westlake officers and got onto the Ohio Turnpike.

That's when police say state troopers joined the chase and formed a rolling blockade to ensure the safety of innocent motorists as the child continued to drive erratically along the Turnpike. At that point one trooper was able to make eye contact with the boy and direct him to pull over, but he kept going, according to the police report.

Reeder tells WKYC the boy was combative after the chase concluded, allegedly spitting and kicking at authorities.

His mother arrived at the scene shortly after the crash.

And just moments later, one of the squad cars finds an opening and drives into the side and back of the boy's auto, finally ending the chase. "You could have got killed". Officers told The Tribune that that the Erie County Prosecutor's Office will determine whether or not to press charges against the young boy, especially since this is the second time he went on a joy ride in less than two weeks.

Other motorists spotted him October 16 on Interstate 90 near West 117th Street after taking his mother's auto. Although during this time period, the boy reportedly got bored and decided he'd take the family auto on a little joyride.
