Fifteen-year-old Alan Moss is charged in the chase that spanned Miami-Dade and Broward County.
Moss was taken down to the Juvenile Assessment Center in Miami where Miami-Dade police said he made a full confession.
The chase began after a white 2013 Chevy Tahoe was reported stolen in the 11900 block of SW 185 Street. Officers had spotted the SUV near Goulds Park and attempted a traffic stop, to no avail.
Chopper4 was over the scene just before 1 p.m.
A white SUV was seen driving down the turnpike at 184th Street and Florida’s Turnpike, eventually making its way to the Don Shula Expressway.
The SUV weaved in and out of traffic and made its way to the Palmetto Expressway (SR-826) as a police cruiser was on its tail.
At one point, SUV circled off and back onto the expressway. Moments later, the driver got off the expressway, driving onto oncoming traffic and barely missing a pedestrian on a crosswalk.
Around 125th Street and 22nd Avenue, the SUV was seen speeding through a residential area with what looked like a Miami Gardens officer chasing the driver.
The chase continued into Broward County, driving onto I-95 using the exit ramp on Pembroke Road, then turning to head south and later exiting on Ives Dairy Road.
Moments later, the driver got back on I-95 but this time headed northbound and got off on the Griffin Road exit. Then got back on again but on the southbound lanes headed back to Miami-Dade County.READ MORE: Norwegian Cruise Line CEO Warns Company Could Take Ships Out Of Florida Over Vaccine Proof Ban
At one point, the driver encountered major traffic but got through it quite quickly, eventually getting off of I-95 at Hallandale Beach Boulevard.
The SUV seemed to be driving around aimlessly in Miami Gardens at one point. Minutes later, the driver’s tire blew out, causing the SUV to spin out but the driver continued, speeding off while an officer in another SUV tried to block him off.
The suspect came close to several pedestrians.
Seventeen-year-old Lavares Frager said he jumped onto the sidewalk when he say the Tahoe blow a tire and start skidding through the intersection.
“He’s sliding, I didn’t even know. I’m thinking, there’s a random car just sliding past. He almost whacked me,” Frager told CBS4’s Natalia Zea.
Fellow pedestrian Azhar Koliwala was stunned by the chase.
“He could’ve hit anybody, that could’ve been someone’s mother someone’s daughter, thank God he didn’t hit anybody and cause any casualties,” said Koliwala.
The driver kept going with three tires and just a rim, not letting up as a police SUV drove next to it, turning from high-speed chase to a low-speed chase.
That gave authorities a chance to close in on the driver, with at least 9 cars being used to block the SUV just before 1:50 p.m. The driver slowed and tried to get out as law enforcement had their guns drawn.
Moss is charged with grand theft (Auto), fleeing and eluding, aggravated assault and no valid driver’s license.
Police said earlier the SUV had rammed one Homestead police unmarked car and several other cars. No injuries were reported.MORE NEWS: Federal Appeals Court Orders New Trial For Former US Rep. Corrine Brown
