MILTON — A teenager faces several charges after he allegedly crashed a stolen car this morning on State Road 87, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Anthony Illuminato Andreu, 18, was driving a 2009 Honda Accord recklessly on Interstate 10 just before 11 a.m., the FHP reported in a press release. The car had been reported stolen from Escambia County.  

Andreu failed to stop as he approached the exit ramp onto SR 87 and hit a concrete barrier, a wall and sign as he headed north, the FHP said. He finally crashed the car in a ditch along the east side of the road and tried to run away. 

FHP troopers caught Andreu, who faces charges of grand theft auto, reckless driving, fleeing in attempt to elude and not having a valid driver's license.
