The incident is not the first time the boy has stolen the family vehicle, WEWS-TV reported.

Police arrested the boy about an hour later after a chase with speeds exceeding 100 miles per hour. It at mile marker 121 on the OH turnpike - more than 50 miles away - in Erie County.

After the boy drove off the road and along a ditch to avoid police, they didn't let him get back on the road.

Highway Patrol Sgt. Tim Hoffman said that's when at least four state troopers began joining the chase and attempted a rolling roadblock as the boy drove erratically along the turnpike with speeds reaching 100 miles per hour (161 kph).

"Can you advise on intentional contact to stop him?" a trooper radioed.

"One of the troopers made visual contact eye-to-eye contact with the child and motioned for him to pull over, and the child physically shook his head no and continued driving".

"It was very lucky no one was hurt", Sgt. Tim Hoffman of the highway patrol told the Post.
