By Kate Augusto, Globe Staff
A 13-year-old boy was charged with drunken driving in a stolen car early this morning in Dorchester after police said he led a state trooper on a short chase and crashed into a light pole.
The boy from Quincy ran from the car and tried to escape on foot after he hit the light pole on Neponset Avenue at about 1 a.m., said Sergeant Dave Mahan, a State Police spokesman.
The boy was caught, taken to Caritas Carney Hospital and treated for what police described as minor injuries. The name of the boy was not released because he is a juvenile, Mahan said.
The boy is being held in a juvenile facility in New Bedford on charges that include operating under the influence, larceny of a motor vehicle, failure to stop, and other motor vehicle violations.
