The pursuit lasted over 50 miles and involved about eight Highway Patrol cars.

The troopers tried to put sticks on the highway to disable the boy's vehicle, but the chase ended only when a decision was made to ram the car.

Immediately afterwards, other cruisers blocked the boy in, pulling him out of the car
