Durham Regional Police Service (DRPS) almost had to do nothing to stop a speeding teenager in Pickering on Saturday. The 16-year old failed to control the car he was driving and it rolled over and came to a stop near McPherson Park.

The teen has been charged after failing to stop for police and fleeing at a high rate of speed, over the weekend, DRPS said yesterday.

It said on July 17, a call came in at around 10:50 pm about a speeding driver. Officers from the West Division tried to stop a Honda CRV which had failed to stop for police in Pickering.

Police said the driver took off at a high rate of speed and eventually rolled over in a residential street. No injuries were reported.

The male teen has been charged with Flight from Police, Dangerous Operation, Take Motor Vehicle without Owners Consent, Drive while under Suspension and Fail/Refuse to Stop.
