— A 15-year-old girl led State Capitol Police on a chase early Wednesday and crashed a Jeep into a tree, a retaining wall and then a utility pole on Boylan Avenue, authorities said.

The girl's name was not released since she is a juvenile, according to Raleigh police. She survived the crash.

A Capitol police officer tried to stop the Jeep on Peace Street around 1 a.m. in reference to a possible domestic situation, but the girl drove off, police said. No other information was released.
