Brooklyn police need your help in locating a man responsible for crashing into multiple cars during a police chase.

Driving a minivan stolen from Cleveland, police say the man was going 94 miles per hour on Interstate 480.

Police say the driver weaved in and out of traffic and had a total disregard for the public’s safety. When officers attempted to pull him over, the driver sped off and continued driving recklessly.

The driver exited Interstate 480 at State Road and again totally ignored street lights and signs, even hitting several cars on State Road.

In police dash cam video, the stolen minivan can be seen veering up onto a sidewalk outside of a cell phone store at the intersection of State Road and Burger Avenue. That’s where the driver exited the vehicle and took off running.

Police have not yet located the man who they suspect is an African American teenager.

If you have any information that may help in making an arrest, you’re asked to call the Brooklyn Police Department at 216-749-1234.
