HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — A driver of a stolen Mercedes slammed into patrol cars in Connecticut and led police on a 13-mile chase.

The Hartford Courant reports a driver hit patrol cars in Hartford on Monday, starting a chase through Newington and New Britain.

Police ran the license plate of the 2016 Mercedes-Benz after seeing the driver asleep with headlights on. As they identified it as a stolen car, the driver woke up, backed into a fence, hit the police cars and screeched off.

The driver of the car, who is in custody, has not been identified.
