STURTEVANT — A Racine teenager has been charged with stealing a car and crashing it into a bridge.
Rayshawn Campbell, 17, of the 1600 block of Winslow Street, was charged with 13 counts of jumping bail, second degree counts of recklessly endangering safety, driving a vehicle fleeing/escape to an officer causing damage to property and driving or operating a vehicle without an owner on the counts of consent and misdemeanor obstruction of an officer and possession of marijuana.
According to a criminal complaint:
At 10:07 a.m. Wednesday, an officer was dispatched to an apartment community residence on Fieldstone Way for a vehicle theft.
Upon arrival, the officer spoke with a woman who said her 2016 Kia Soul was stolen from the parking garage. She said she last drove him at 3pm on Tuesday and noticed he was missing at 8.40am on Wednesday.
At 3:06 p.m. Wednesday, an officer was on patrol when he saw the stolen Kia Soul heading west on Linden Avenue. He activated his hazard warning lights and attempted to initiate a traffic stop, but the car did not stop. Eventually, the car turned onto 12th Street and accelerated to high speed before crashing over a sidewalk, onto the Washington Park golf course, and then colliding with a bridge.
