A Lubbock teenager is in custody after leading police in a brief chase and crashing his vehicle Sunday morning.
The incident began at 5 a.m., when police were told someone was passed out in a parked vehicle in the 3700 block of Gary Avenue. When officers arrived to make contact, the suspect drove away, beginning a very short chase with police before crashing into a nearby building.
Seventeen-year-old Aden Tovar was arrested and charged with evading in a vehicle and child endangerment.
Both Tovar and an unidentified juvenile passenger were treated for minor injuries. Lubbock police are still investigating.
