HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) — Maryland State Police say they're looking for a juvenile offender who escaped from a western Maryland work camp and is believed to have stolen a car in Allegany County and crashed it on Interstate 70 near Hagerstown.
A police sergeant tells The Herald-Mail (http://bit.ly/1qHECx0 ) that the 16-year-old boy ran from the crash scene Tuesday morning and tried to break into a house near Williamsport before fleeing.
Police say the boy ran off from a youth work camp in Garrett County, more than 70 miles from Hagerstown. They say they believe he was driving a Jeep Cherokee with West Virginia tags that struck a State Highway Administration mowing vehicle shortly before 8 a.m. near the I-81 interchange.
Police say the SUV then hit the guardrail and was abandoned.
