MANITOWOC, WI (WTAQ) - Police in Manitowoc say two boys were arrested Wednesday after leading officers on a chase in a stolen car.
Cops get the call to the 2100 block of South 17th Street just after 5 a.m. for a report of a stolen car. About an hour later, authorities spotted the car driving through the city's north side. The officer followed the car without trying to pull it over, reporting the location to officers coming to help.
When the other officers were in position, police tried to pull the car over. The driver refused to stop, leading police on a brief chase.
The driver lost control of the car on North 8th Street/Highway B, just north of Woodridge Drive. The car veered off the roadway, side-swiped a telephone pole and crashed into the ditch.
Both boys were taken to the hospital for non-life threatening injuries.
The boys’ names and ages were not released.
