A traffic stop turned into a police chase and a driver took police on a dangerous ride through several neighborhoods in the middle of the night.

It started in Westland and ended in Inkster.

Police say this was a pretty intense chase. They say the driver kept plowing though the streets even after the lights and sirens were turned on.

The police pursuit in and out of residential streets in Metro Detroit was caught on dash cam video.

Westland police say it started around three this morning in the area of Henry Ruff and Michigan Avenue after they noticed the SUV was stolen.

Officers tried to make a traffic stop.

The driver would then take them on a dangerous joy ride for more than 5 miles, speeding, swerving and taking sharp turns. Officers in the police car were able to keep up, but not get too close.

Minutes later, the driver pulled into a driveway on the 4000 block of Farnum in Inkster. He and two others got out and started running.

Police say one person got away. The other two attempted to run, but were caught.

Two-teens, just 16 and 17-years-old are now in custody. But police say they're still looking for the other person who was with them.

The good news here, no-one was injured in this incident
