A 16-year-old boy is accused of leading police on a chase through Dundee in a stolen car before smashing into a parked vehicle after going round a roundabout the wrong way.
The teenager, of Montrose, who cannot be named for legal reasons, is accused of a string of motoring offences over the incident on September 30.
He is alleged to have stolen a car at Victoria Park in Arbroath before failing to stop when ordered to do so by three uniformed officers on Douglas Road, Dundee.
The boy is then said to have driven the Peugeot 208 through a series of streets in the Douglas and Fintry areas of Dundee.
His case was continued without plea until later this month.
