Three teens sped down the Beltline in a stolen car while police chased them until crashing into a concrete barrier in Monona, according to the police.

Monona Police Chief Walter J. Ostrenga stated in a release that officers saw a white Chevrolet Cobalt speeding down the Beltline about half an hour after midnight. The vehicle’s description matched that of a car reported to have stolen earlier in Fitchburg.

But the chase was not a long one. The stolen vehicle struck a concrete barrier just west of Todd Drive, Ostrenga states, and officers discovered three teens inside. They were brought into custody.

The male driver, a 14-year old from Fitchburg, has been arrested for Operating a Motor Vehicle Without Owner’s Consent, felony eluding and many other traffic citations. Where as the two male passengers, a 15-year old from Verona and a 14-year old from Madison, have been arrested for Operating a Motor Vehicle Without Owner’s Consent.
