Bridgewater police say they were led on a chase by a 13-year-old, four-foot-five driver who was speeding and going the wrong way on a one-way street.

Police said a Pontiac Grand Am was spotted driving erratically early Saturday morning in Bridgewater, N.S.

The car was travelling more than 120 km/h in a 50 km/h zone. It was accelerating, and at that point officers stopped their chase, police said.

Officers found the car a few kilometres away after it hit a fence on York Street. The driver wasn't hurt.

Police said a 13-year-old boy was arrested and handed over to his mother. He is facing charges of:

  • Flight from police,
  • Dangerous operation of a motor vehicle,
  • Theft of a motor vehicle.
