Teen flips stolen vehicle in Edgehill following police chase

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — A teenager has been hospitalized after police said he flipped a stolen vehicle after a high-speed chase in Edgehill on Wednesday afternoon.

According to Metro Nashville Police Department (MNPD) documents, two stolen vehicles, a Toyota 4Runner and a Kia Soul, were inside a short-term rental that was broken into on Archer Street just four days earlier. Detectives then conducted a surveillance of the vehicles and said they saw 18-year-old Christon Collins entering the 4Runner.

Officers then followed the vehicle and attempted to pull Collins past, but said he sped away, driving through residential neighborhoods, school zones and even a red light. Collins then reportedly hit two vehicles and flipped the car, then got out and ran about 200 yards before being taken into custody.

Officers searched the vehicle and said they found a loaded firearm in the passenger seat and 10 grams of marijuana in his bag when Collins was arrested.

According to the MNPD, Collins was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center for a medical evaluation and questioned by detectives. Collins allegedly told authorities he was unaware the car was stolen and that he fled because he had marijuana on him.
