SIMI VALLEY, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say a 16-year-old boy suspected of stealing a car was arrested after leading officers on wild nighttime pursuit without headlights that ended when he crashed into a tree in Ventura County.

Police in Simi Valley said a sergeant decided to call off the high-speed chase early Sunday, considering it too dangerous after the suspect ran several red lights.

Officers later found the driver at the scene of the crash. His passenger ran into a nearby apartment complex, where he was soon found. No injuries were reported.

The Ventura County Star reports (http://bit.ly/1dXmVHp ) the suspect was arrested on suspicion of auto theft, DUI and felony evading. His name was not released because he is a teenager.

The passenger was arrested on suspicion of resisting arrest.
