PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Two cars collided after a juvenile led police on a chase, ultimately crashing into another car in Robinson Township.

Police say the 16-year-old McKeesport teen behind the wheel of the car was missing from a program from juvenile delinquents.

It all began along Steubenville Pike where there was a call about a motorist driving erratically.

Police tried to block the teen, but he sped off.

“By the time the officers got turned around, the suspect had taken off at a high rate of speed towards Interstate 79. The officers tried to catch up but never did, they went around the corner and discovered a major crash,” Robinson Township Police Chief Dale Vietmeier said.

Police say the teen was driving a stolen Oldsmobile Alero, and there wasn’t much of it, debris was scattered for at least a quarter-mile.

Both the teen, and his 15-year-old female passenger were taken to Children’s Hospital.

The driver of the other car, a Dodge Charger, was 49-year-old James Rosenberg of Robinson.

He was injured, but is said to have been up and about when he checked on his car in the tow lot.

Meantime, the 16 year old faces a slew of charges and is a runaway from a juvenile program at Schuman Center, in fact there was a warrant out for his arrest.

Both he and his passenger remain at Children’s Hospital.
