Teenager facing numerous charges in Halifax crash

A couple and their baby were taken to hospital after they were struck by a stolen car fleeing police.

The ordeal began when police stopped a car on Brunswick Street Thursday at about 9:15 p.m.

Halifax Regional Police said the driver sped away but crashed and flipped over on North Street, striking another vehicle.

The driver escaped, police said, but he was arrested soon after.

A man, woman and infant were inside the second vehicle. Police said they suffered non-life-threatening injuries and were taken to the QEII Health Sciences Centre for treatment.

Police said the crashed car had been reported stolen earlier in the day.

A teenaged boy is due in court Friday to face charges of:

  • Possession of a stolen vehicle,
  • Dangerous driving causing bodily harm,
  • Flight from police,
  • Leaving the scene of an accident,
  • Violating probation.
