On Thursday morning, a 10-year-old boy was at home waiting for his sister take him to school, just like any other day. After the vehicle the boy was driving came to a complete stop, officers ran over to that auto door, broke the window and removed the boy from the auto.

She chased her son, who drove about 96 miles per hour, on I-90 through Cuyahoga, Lake and Erie counties, police and state troopers said. At one point during the call, the mother told the dispatcher she was anxious her son would get into an accident.

When his mother realised that he had stolen the auto, she jumped in her own vehicle and pursued the young boy.

That's when one trooper nudged the boy's auto into the milepost 121 sign with his cruiser, and another cruiser blocked the vehicle and prevented it from re-entering the road, Hoffman said.

A 10-year-old boy has led police in a unsafe auto chase in the American state of Ohio. State police picked up the pursuit when the child entered Interstate 80.

Police dash cam video shows several cop cars chasing after the young driver as he flies down the OH turnpike.

After making eye contact with the boy during the chase, a trooper signaled him to pull over. "At that point in time, the child swerved to the right and started driving in the ditch", said Reeder. Police went to the mother's home and, a short time later, other officers responded to a call about a auto driven by a small boy on I-90 in Cleveland in the high-speed lane with three flat tires, according to the report.

The chase ended at 9:49 a.m., about one hour after he took off.

Shortly after, the boy's mother arrived and questioned her son.

The boy's joyride was the second in as many weeks, according to police.

"Why did you do this when I kept trying to get you to stop?" his mother asks.

Police said he only stopped during that incident because the auto got three flat tires. "You could have got killed".

According to Cleveland.com, the boy made a decision to snatch his mother's boyfriend's vehicle keys and take off as his sister was in the bathroom.
