A teenager in a stolen vehicle and wearing a headband jumped out of the driving car during a chase with Ohio police this week before falling hard to the ground.

The Whitehall Police Department found a stolen vehicle around 6 p.m. 01.15 Wednesday and found a 16-year-old boy inside.

The driver led officers on a chase through the city, just outside Columbus, and stoplights were put in place to make the car stop, police said. As the vehicle moved to the side of the road, it appears that the teenager is moving from the driver’s seat to the passenger seat and sees trying to jump out of the car.

He appears to be toppling over before landing on the ground near a crash barrier, according to police dashcam footage.
