The officer said the driver was speeding and disregarded a stop sign at LaPorte and Colfax.

A pursuit began, but the officer called it off because of speed at Walnut and Washington, reports said.

The driver, a 15-year-old male, was taken to the hospital for his injuries.

He will be taken to the Juvenile Justice Center when discharged.
