A 14-year-old Santa Rosa boy led police on a high-speed chase, driving up to 100 mph in a stolen car early Friday in Santa Rosa, officials said.

Police first noticed the suspect car just before 2 a.m. driving in downtown Cotati with its headlights off, authorities said.

When an officer attempted to stop the car, the driver sped off, police said. He left downtown Cotati and continued westbound on West Sierra Avenue, hitting speeds of up to 100 mph, police said.

As the chase headed north on Stony Point Road, the vehicle sideswiped a car that was pulling over to get out of its path, police added.

The pursuit went into southeast Santa Rosa and onto Hearn Avenue, crossing over Highway 101.
