{{featured_button_text}}

A 14-year-old Omaha boy was clocked driving 125 mph Wednesday night while trying to evade a Nebraska State Patrol trooper in Omaha.

The pursuit began at 9:10 p.m. when a trooper spotted a Nissan Altima heading west on Interstate 80 near the Interstate 680 interchange traveling at 100 mph, a patrol spokesman said. The driver refused to pull over for a traffic stop and accelerated north onto I-680.

The trooper reported that the Nissan was weaving through traffic, reaching speeds of 125 mph, the spokesman said.

After the Nissan exited I-680 and headed west on Fort Street, the trooper performed a tactical intervention that brought the vehicle to a stop.

The driver was taken into custody and booked into the Douglas County Youth Center. He was arrested on suspicion of felony flight to avoid arrest, felony willful reckless driving, operating a vehicle without a license and other traffic violations.
