NORTHBORO, MASS. (WHDH) - A juvenile was taken into state police custody and two people were hospitalized after a multi-town car chase came to a crashing end in Northboro on Monday.

Troopers tracking a Lexus in Ashland that had been reported stolen out of Peabody around 12 p.m. used helicopter Air 5 after it had eluded several police departments in the Natick area, according to state police. The chase continued to Northboro, where the vehicle hit stop sticks deployed by police and crashed into another vehicle before coming to rest in the median strip, state police said.

The car’s owner, who did not want to show his face on camera, said his Lexus was stolen early Monday morning. He tracked his car, watching as it was driven down to Rhode Island and back into Massachusetts.

“I had a GPS on the Lexus app and I was just tracking it on there,” he said.

Two of the suspects were transported to UMass Medical Center with minor injuries. A juvenile was transported to the State Police-Leominster Barracks for booking.

A follow-up investigation determined the vehicle was involved in a crash with two other vehicles on the ramp from Route 495 to Route 290 in Marlboro.

“I put a lot of money in there. It was a nice car. It meant a lot to me, but I feel everything happens for a reason,” the car’s owner said. “The car can be replaced, everything else can be replaced, but if you hurt somebody, that can’t really be replaced.”
