REMSEN, N.Y. - A teen driver is accused of leading New York State troopers on a car chase in a stolen vehicle through parts of Oneida and Lewis Counties.

Authorities said troopers were running stationary radar on State Route 12 near Pritchard Road when a black 2011 Cadillac SRX passed them traveling at 82 mph early Monday morning. Troopers attempted to pull over the vehicle, but they said when they activated their emergency lights, the driver suddenly sped off.

The pursuit continued north on State Route 12 and entered into Lewis County. The suspect eventually struck a chain that crossed the roadway in the Village of Port Leyden. Troopers then stopped behind the suspect vehicle, but they said the driver then fled out of the passenger side of the vehicle into a residential area. A chase ensued.

While officers chased the teen on foot, the suspect vehicle, which was still in gear, then rolled backwards into the state police patrol car, causing front-end damage.

The suspect was located a short time later and taken into custody.

State Police said their investigation revealed the 18-year-old driver had stolen the vehicle in New Haven, Connecticut and was driving to the City of Utica.

The suspect is charged with criminal possession of stolen property (a felony), unlawful fleeing a police officer in a motor vehicle, and reckless endangerment.

Due to the suspect's age, State Police said they will not be releasing his name and arrest photo.
