LORAIN COUNTY, OH (WOIO) -

Troopers are investigating after a stolen vehicle fled a traffic stop Wednesday before crashing in Elyria Township.

The incident happened around 1 p.m. on Murray Ridge Road.

Authorities stopped a 2004 Toyota Camry for a speed violation north of the Murray Ridge/Leo Bullocks Parkway intersection. They said the vehicle sped away, and a computer check revealed the car was stolen.

The car lost control on West River, north of Infirmary Road, eventually striking a chain-link fence and unoccupied vehicle on the opposite side of the fence.

Authorities said a male driver exited and fled on foot, running eastbound towards Middle Avenue.

The only passenger, 18-year-old Isaiah Makuch, of Elyria, remained seated in the vehicle and was taken into custody.

The 15-year-old driver was taken into custody and transported to a hospital for minor injuries. His name is not being released.

The 15-year-old has been charged with receiving stolen property, fleeing and eluding, failure to comply with an order to stop, no driver's license, speeding, and not wearing a seat belt. He was incarcerated at the Lorain County Juvenile Detention Center.

The passenger was charged with obstructing official business, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, possession of marijuana, and trafficking drugs. He was incarcerated at the Lorain County Jail.
