HOUSTON (KTRK/CNN) - Police in Houston arrested a 13-year-old boy after they say he led them on a high-speed pursuit in a stolen vehicle overnight.

It happened after a sheriff's deputy saw a car speeding down the road at 60-miles an hour in a 35-mile per hour zone.

The deputy tried to pull the driver over, but he sped away, with the chase reaching speeds of 100 miles per hour, according to authorities. 

The pursuit came to an end when the driver crashed.

Police say that the teen will be facing felony charges.

The deputy struck another motorist during the chase.

That driver was hospitalized as a precaution, but both he and the deputy are ok.
