COEYMANS – It turned out that a person who led police on a chase Monday evening isn’t even old enough to drive.
Police tried to stop the car on Route 9W for a broken tail light. Instead, the car sped off, eventually hitting and shearing off a telephone pole.
The driver fled on foot.
Police tracked him down through mail and a missing sneaker found at the scene.
The 14-year-old driver faces felony grand larceny charges for allegedly taking the car.
