SOUTH STORMONT – A Quebec teenager is accused of leading SD&G O.P.P. on a high speed chase along a stretch of Highway 401 which reached speeds over 200 kilometers an hour, Wednesday.

An officer tried to stop the vehicle for some sort of traffic violation when the driver took off before he was “successfully intercepted.”

“The vehicle was stopped for travelling 209 kilometers an hour in a 100 kilometer an hour zone,” police said.

A 16-year-old boy from Dollard-des-Ormeaux, Que. was arrested and charged with flight from police under the Criminal Code of Canada and stunt driving under the Highway Traffic Act.

He was released with a Feb. 21, 2019 court date in Cornwall.

His name wasn’t released because he’s a minor.

The teen’s driver’s licence was suspended for a week and his vehicle impounded for the same amount of time.
