Impaired Teen Crashes Into 4 Cars

BELLINGHAM, Wash. (AP) -- The Washington State Patrol says an apparently intoxicated 14-year-old driver led a trooper on a short car chase before crashing into four vehicles in Bellingham.

Trooper Keith Leary says the trooper turned on his lights early Wednesday when he noticed a 2009 Pontiac weaving and traveling 20 miles per hour under the 50 mph speed limit. That caused the driver to speed up, zipping into an apartment complex and colliding with the other cars.

The Bellingham Herald reports (http://is.gd/iRWT1Q ) that the short chase reached speeds of 60 mph in a 25 mph zone.

The 14-year-old boy was booked into juvenile detention for investigation of DUI, eluding and taking a car without the owner's permission.

Leary says the passengers included two 12-year-olds, a 15-year-old and a 53-year-old man. He described all but one 12-year-old as extremely intoxicated.

The investigation continues.
