The teen is facing multiple charges related to the pursuit and the stolen property.

A speeding U.K. teen made things easier for police in 2020 when the driver crashed a stolen vehicle into a home that contained an illicit cannabis grow.

The 15-year-old driver and a 17-year-old passenger attempted to evade police by throwing objects, including bricks, at pursuing officers.

Undeterred, officers continued the pursuit, only for the teen to smash into a van and then crash into a nail salon. The van driver sustained serious injuries to his head and neck.

The teen driver, meanwhile, fled the scene on foot and was later taken into custody following medical treatment for minor injuries. The passenger sustained serious injuries to his spine.

While investigating the scene of the crash, officers discovered 50 cannabis plants estimated to be worth about $80,000 in an apartment above the nail salon. 

The illicit grow was not believed to be associated with the driver of the stolen car. A third teen was also believed to have been travelling in the vehicle, but managed to evade officers.

“A third youth fled the scene and officers are currently pursuing a number of lines of inquiry as investigations continue,” a West Midlands Police spokesperson said at the time.
