Yesterday at approximately 10:11 p.m., near the intersection of Cornelison Avenue from Bright Street, Jersey City police officers attempted to conduct a traffic stop and the driver of the vehicle refused to stop – initiating a vehicle pursuit – according to city spokeswoman Kimberly Wallace-Scalcione.

The pursuit came to an end when the driver allegedly attempted to turn onto Cornelison Avenue from Bright Street after running the stop sign, and crashed into a pile of dirt over the curb.

All four occupants were juveniles, ranging 14 from 16 to years old, and none of them sustained any injuries, authorities said.

The 14-year-old driver was arrested and charged with eluding and possession of marijuana under 50 grams, as well as receiving a slew of motor vehicle summonses.

Those summonses include operating an unregistered vehicle, having a broken passenger mirror, failure to observe a traffic lane, reckless driving, disregard of an official traffic control device (two counts), driving the wrong way on a one-way street (two counts), possession of CDS in a motor vehicle, driving without a license, careless driving, and operating an unregistered vehicle, Wallace-Scalcione said.
