JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- A 13-year-old runaway Florida boy has been arrested after authorities say he led a deputy on a car chase with two other teens that ended in a dangerous collision.

Florida Highway Patrol officials said the teen was driving an SUV through Columbia County on Saturday with 14-year-old and 13-year-old passengers. All three had reportedly run away from their homes in Clay County. The Associated Press is not naming them because they are minors.

Authorities said they tried to stop the boy, but he ran a red light and crashed into another vehicle. The two occupants of that vehicle were treated for minor injuries.

The teens were not injured. All three were arrested, but the FHP report does not specify the charges.
