Drunk teen crashes into 4 cars in Bellingham

BELLINGHAM -- The Washington State Patrol says an apparently intoxicated 14-year-old driver led a trooper on a short car chase before crashing into four vehicles in Bellingham.
Trooper Keith Leary said the trooper turned on his lights early Wednesday when he noticed a 2009 Pontiac weaving and traveling 20 miles per hour under the 50 mph speed limit. That caused the driver to speed up, zipping into an apartment complex and colliding with the other cars.
The Bellingham Herald reported that the short chase reached speeds of 60 mph in a 25 mph zone.
The 14-year-old boy was booked into juvenile detention for investigation of DUI, eluding and taking a car without the owner's permission.
Leary said the passengers included two 12-year-olds, a 15-year-old and a 53-year-old man. He described all but one 12-year-old as extremely intoxicated.
The investigation continues.
