A 14-year-old juvenile from Oregon was taken into custody at approximately 12:40 am, after he crashed a stolen pick-up truck on US Highway 12 and Monona Drive.

Earlier in the evening, Marshall Police attempted to stop the 2012 Dodge Ram pick-up in the Village of Marshall near the area of Madison Street and Howard Street.  The driver fled at a high rate of speed, and a short pursuit was terminated after police lost sight of the vehicle.  A Dane County Sheriff’s deputy located the vehicle on I-94 and CTH N, again attempting to stop the truck with no avail.  A second Dane County deputy then spotted the vehicle, which was reported stolen from the Village of Oregon, on US Highway 12 and CTH AB. 

Monona Police and Dane County deputies successfully deployed road spikes at US Highway 12 near Agriculture Dr.  The driver lost control of the vehicle and crashed into the median on US Highway 12 near Monona Drive. 

The 14-year-old male driver was arrested for OWI – 1st offense, OMWOC (Operating a Motor Vehicle Without Owner’s Consent), and two counts of Eluding.  He was not injured in the crash and was transported to a local hospital for a blood sample and then the Juvenile Reception Center.  The Wisconsin State Patrol is handling the crash report.
