A 19-year-old was arrested on Wednesday evening after causing a traffic accident while attempting to outrun police who signaled for him to pull over. According to reports, the boy had recently received his license, but had been driving without adult accompaniment - as is required by law for those with new licenses. The car was also transporting too many passengers. The teenager had been driving in the North when he came across a roadblock where police were conducting routine checks. Police spotted him as he was making a U-turn and called for him to pull over, but he sped up instead. At some point in the chase, the boy crashed the vehicle. He was then arrested by the police.
