After causing damage to the front of the structure, the teen got out of the car and ran away.

Police caught up to him a short time later and brought him to a hospital to be treated for some minor injuries.

Once he’s medically cleared, the N.B.P.D will charge him with Evading on Foot, Fleeing the Scene of an Accident, and Resisting Arrest. Police also suspect he was intoxicated at the time of the crash so more charges may be filed.

Nobody else was injured in the crash but the teen damaged the facade of the building.

Traffic was delayed for a short time while crews cleared the scene.
