Attapulugus, GA (WALB) - A south Georgia teen is hospitalized after his four-wheeler crashed into a convenience store after he tried to flee from police.

Attapulugus Police Chief James Spooner tried to pull over the teen for operating an A-T-V in the parking lot of Quick Buy's food store when he tried to take off.  Chief Spooner pinned the 17-year old's four-wheeler into the front of the store near a newspaper stand. One man heard it all happen around 2:00 p.m.

"It sounded like a piece of tin hit it and I heard a big bam," said witness Carsmore Johnson. "The other guys and I walked up here and we looked and that's what we saw."

EMS rushed the teen to the hospital with a broken leg and other possible injuries.
