Police: Intoxicated 12-year-old crashes SUV

AUSTIN - A 12-year-old boy is facing several charges after he allegedly led police on a chase while intoxicated along Pleasant Valley Road before crashing Monday morning.

An officer initially tried to stop the boy, who has not been identified as of Monday evening, in the 900 block of Springdale Road when the officer saw him nearly strike a cyclist. According to police, he was driving recklessly down Pleasant Valley Road before he hit a pickup with two people inside. Nobody was injured in that crash, but police say the boy did not stop to render aid.

The boy, who was driving by himself, then slammed into a pole and flipped over at around 7:45 a.m. Monday

The boy was taken to Dell Children's with minor injuries. He faces charges that include driving while intoxicated, evading arrest and failure to stop and render aid.
