A Bradley County teen has died in a police pursuit after taking his grandmother's car.
Eric Tyler Johnson was 16 when the vehicle went out of control and crossed the center line on Michigan Avenue. It went into a ditch before striking a telephone pole.
Ms. Johnson, driving another car, got behind the car driven by her teen and got on the line with police.
However, she said she told them not to engage in a high-speed chase, saying he did not know how to drive. She said he sped off when he heard sirens.
