Highway Patrol Sergeant Tim Hoffman said that's when at least four state troopers began joining the chase and attempted a rolling roadblock as the boy drove erratically along the turnpike with speeds reaching 100 miles per hour (161 kph).

The 10-year-old had previously stolen his mother's vehicle October 16 and was stopped on I-90 in Cleveland in a high-speed lane with three flat tires, a police report said.

- A 10-year-old OH boy led highway patrol troopers on a high-speed chase with a wild conclusion.

"I don't if it's like a kid that's swerving in and out of traffic, nearly ran a couple cars off the road", another 911 caller told the dispatcher.

Around 9:15 a.m., a driver called to report that the auto was being chased by another red vehicle, possibly the boy's mother.

Police attempted to pull him over; however, the boy refused the authorities' demands, and the chase was on, according to Cleveland.com.

During the pursuit, the boy avoided spike strips by veering onto grass on the side of the road.

Though the watch is not made of any precious metals or stones, it is worth a lot to collectors because of its story. In an interview with the Wall Street Journal , Cox explained , " Paul asked me what time it was, to set his watch".

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

"Break the window", one trooper said. The chase comes to an end when an officer hits the back of the boy's vehicle causing him to hit another cruiser.

"It was very lucky no one was hurt", Highway Patrol Sergeant Tim Hoffman said, the AP reported. He was taken to a hospital as a precaution.

The boy was found driving with three flat tires in the high-speed lane on I-90 eastbound near West 117th Street.

The boy led Westlake officers on a chase through Lorain and Erie counties.

A Cleveland police report shows that the boy stole a 2013 Dodge Charger from his mother's boyfriend on October 16. According to multiple media outlets, he was taken to the Cuyahoga County Juvenile Justice Center and released to his mother.
