A teenager is in the hospital after Huntsville Police said she led them on a chase that ended with her crashing into a utility pole.
Saturday evening, a 37-year-old woman reported her car was stolen and Huntsville Police began searching for the vehicle.
About 8 p.m., it was spotted heading south on Pulaski Pike near Oakwood Avenue.
When the 16-year-old driver refused to pull over near Pulaski Pike and Holmes Avenue, police said she turned west onto Homes Avenue and headed toward Jordan Lane.
Officers said the car swerved to avoid spike stripes at Jordan Lane and Homes Avenue and then hit a utility pole at the intersection.
Police said she was taken into custody and transported to Huntsville Hospital with minor injuries. She will be charged with First-Degree Theft of Property, Attempt to Flee and/or Elude and Reckless Endangerment.
Huntsville Utilities was informed about the damage to the pole.
