PITTSBURGH (AP) - A Pittsburgh man is facing charges in a high-speed chase over the weekend that ended in a two-vehicle crash that injured a 12-year-old and four others.

Police say 22-year-old Donovan Robinson was charged with 56 counts, including aggravated assault by vehicle and endangering the welfare of children.

Police say the chase happened Sunday night when officers tried to pull Robinson over for a traffic infraction. They say the pursuit ended when Robinson’s car hit another vehicle.

Authorities say they recovered two ski masks, a bulletproof vest and a police scanner from his vehicle.

The crash led the city’s chief to issue a new policy on vehicle pursuits barring officers from starting chases unless they believe a suspect in a violent felony is involved.

Court records don’t list an attorney for Robinson.
