Authorities Tuesday are trying to determine why the driver of a pickup truck led officers on a 20-minute chase in North Hills, but they say they suspect it has something to do with age.

The suspect arrested in Monday night’s pursuit is a 14-year-old boy, said Sgt. James Bender of the Los Angeles Police Department’s Mission Division.

The chase began about 8:30 p.m. in the area of Polk Street and Bradley Avenue in Sylmar and ended about 20 minutes later at Nordhoff Street and Langdon Avenue, said Officer Mike Lopez of LAPD’s Media Relations Section.

The chase ended when the suspect crashed the pickup truck into another vehicle, according to Bender. He was taken to a hospital, then released back into police custody.

Bender said he did not know how many people were in the other vehicle but said no other injuries were reported.
