The incident happened just after 7 pm Wednesday (10/12) when police began chasing three stolen Mustangs that had been reported stolen on Tuesday from the Flat Rock Assembly Plant lot in Woodhaven.

One of the stolen vehicles has a sticker price of $113,000.

Stolen Vehicles Spotted on I-75

Brownstown Police officers began chasing the three stolen vehicles after they spotted them driving on I-75. Officers began to chase all three stolen vehicles but lost sight of two of them. According to WJBK-TV, officers continued their pursuit of one of the vehicles, chasing it until it ran out of gas on an I-75 overpass at Pleasant Street in Detroit.

Officer Starzec with the Brownstown Police department says officers were stunned when the teen jumped out of the car and immediately jumped off the overpass.

"It was a tall bridge. We didn't expect that. I don't think the gentlemen expected it to be a far drop either," Starzec said.

It's estimated that the teen took a 25 to 30-foot fall.

Teen Expected to Recover

After taking the fall, paramedics arrived on the scene to take the teen to the hospital. His injuries were not life-threatening and he is expected to make a full recovery.

It's unknown at this time what charges may be filed against the 14-year-old boy.
