WESTWOOD, OH (FOX19) -

One juvenile was arrested after leading police that ended with crash in Westwood Wednesday evening.

According to police, a Mercedes was carjacked in Green Township and crashed while being chased by police at the corner of Werk Rd. and Boudinot Ave.

Officers in Green Township were advised that an aggravated robbery suspect had just taken a vehicle in the parking lot of the Home Depot, located at 6300 Glenway Avenue.

Hamilton County Deputy Steven Junker attempted to initiate a traffic stop, however the vehicle refused to stop continuing southbound on Glenway Avenue. 

During the pursuit, the fleeing vehicle traveled at high speeds and drove erratically through heavy traffic.

At the intersection of Queen City and Boudinot Avenue, the vehicle struck a black Kia stopped at a traffic signal, according to police. 

The vehicle then continued through a red traffic signal striking a City Public Works truck causing the vehicle to become disabled. 

The suspect was then taken into custody.

The Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office charged the male juvenile with felony fleeing and eluding. 

More charges could be pending.
