Teen Involved in Fiery Car Accident near Chicago

A 16-year-old escaped from the fiery wreckage of a car accident in suburban Chicago moments before the car became completely engulfed in flames. The teen driver was attempting to run from Illinois State troopers who tried to pull the young man over for speeding. The driver did not pull over for the police officer and instead tried to evade them. In doing so, he lost control and crashed his car into a tree along a ramp of the highway. After hitting the tree, the car immediately caught on fire.

The boy was able to escape the car accident on his own and was then taken to a local hospital with no major injuries. Illinois State Police later charged him with driving a stolen vehicle, fleeing from police and operating a car with no driver’s license. To read about this fiery car crash, follow the link.
