Police in Ohio say a 50-mile pursuit of a stolen dump truck had officers dodging bricks hurled from its window and dodging the truck itself when it suddenly went into reverse.

Police cruiser video shows the truck striking police cars and several civilian vehicles during Saturday's chase through parts of three northeast Ohio counties.

The Akron Beacon Journal reports authorities have charged a 17-year-old suspect with multiple juvenile court charges including felonious assault with a weapon — namely, the truck.

The pursuit began after the truck was reported stolen in Stow, about 25 miles southeast of Cleveland.

Stow Police Chief Louis Dirker Jr. says one of his cruisers was totaled and two others were damaged. Two officers were treated for bumps.
