A 15-year-old teenager in Oregon recently led police on a high-speed chase for more than 50 miles and part of it was caught on camera.

Oregon State Police say that the teen stole a Ford F-350 truck in Umatilla County, Oregon.

The teen led troopers on a high-speed chase that involved speeds of nearly 100 mph along Interstate 84.

Troopers laid down spikes twice before the teenager finally lost control and crashed into the median.

Even then, the teenager tried to get away. But, troopers were able to stop him and put the boy in handcuffs.

The teen is facing a slew of charges. His name has not been released due to his age. However, it was revealed that he is from Plymouth, Washington.
