COSHOCTON, Ohio – Dash cam video shows a 12-year-old leading police on a chase when officers followed the swerving pick-up truck through three counties before spike strips caused the truck to spin into a field, where the boy was arrested and charged with grand theft and felony fleeing and eluding.

After running away from his home using his parents van, the boy — who has not been named — stole a second vehicle, and then ditched it for the pick-up truck.

“You look through the back window of the truck, you don't even see a driver. It's just like a ghost driving the vehicle. There's nobody there,” police chief Kevin Kaser told 10TV.
