SYRACUSE, Utah — A teenager fleeing police in a stolen vehicle tore through a Utah park on Saturday, nearly hitting children who scrambled to get out of the way.

The incident was caught on video by a parent at the park, who can be heard yelling at the children to get out of the way of the out-of-control vehicle, KSTU-TV in Salt Lake City reported.

Police say the 14-year-old boy took the car without permission from his grandfather, who reported it stolen to police.

The car then plowed through the park and narrowly avoided hitting several children, as captured on video below.

The chase finally ended when a truck collided with with it in a neighborhood, and the crash also was captured on video.

The driver of the truck, Bryson Rowley, told KSTU he was concerned for the safety of children at the park and purposely rammed into the vehicle.

“The person driving the truck could see it was turning back into the park, and he did not want the car to hit all of the children, or any of the children, and he actually pulled his truck in the way so the car collided with the truck,” Officer Erin Behm with the Syracuse Police Department told the station.
