IRON MOUNTAIN, Mich. — Police say a 15-year-old Wisconsin boy driving a stolen vehicle rammed a Michigan State Police vehicle, causing a crash that injured him and two troopers.

Michigan State Police say they were notified Monday morning by Wisconsin authorities that the stolen vehicle was headed into Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Iron Mountain police chased the vehicle through the Michigan city's downtown and state troopers also pursued the vehicle.

Police say the boy hit the trooper's vehicle in Dickinson County's Breitung Township, near Iron Mountain.

The troopers and the boy were taken to a hospital, where they were treated for what were described by police as minor injuries.

The boy was being held and is expected to face charges.
