An 11-year-old boy will face the Elizabeth Youth Court following a police pursuit in Adelaide’s northern suburbs early this morning.

Key points:

  • Police pursued a car through Adelaide’s northern suburbs
  • A boy was arrested after a search aided by a police dog
  • Locals were surprised at the age of the driver

Police say they tried to pull over a white Toyota Prius just before 4:00am after checks revealed it had allegedly been stolen during a break-in in Valley View on Friday morning.

When the vehicle failed to stop, they pursued it along John Rice Avenue and Main North Road at Elizabeth South before it crashed into a tree at the intersection of Main North and Montague roads in Pooraka.


The driver fled the car but a search involving a police dog quickly located the suspect nearby.

The 11-year-old from Craigmore was charged with illegal use of a motor vehicle.

He was bailed to appear in court in June.

Locals were surprised at the age of the arrested boy.

Peter Modra said he heard screeches and then a thump.

“When I hear an 11-year-old at four o’clock in the morning, what are they doing in the car?” he said.

He said accidents were common at the busy intersection, but at 4:00am there was much less traffic than at other times.

Another local, Martha Nagbe, said it was “crazy” to hear a child was at the wheel.v
