Almost naked teen possibly connected to Vancouver crash

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) -- A 16-year-old with a preexisting warrant was taken into custody on Wednesday morning in Vancouver after he was found walking around in just his underwear, and now officers are investigating if he was involved in a police chase that ended with a crash in front of Umpqua Bank. 

Vancouver Police said officers saw a Black Scion without its headlights on at 1:05 a.m., traveling near 112th Avenue and Burton Road. When officers attempted to pull over the Scion, the vehicle fled, accelerating through several red lights, police said. They didn't pursue. 

Five minutes later, the same vehicle was found flipped on its roof in front of the Umpqua Bank located on 10705 Northeast Plain Boulevard. There was no one inside, but officers did find items of clothing that had been taken off eastbound toward 112th Avenue, according to Vancouver Police. 

Officers followed in the direction leading away from the clothes and found the 16-year-old walking in the area. They took him into custody, but they couldn't confirm he was involved in the fleeing vehicle and crash. 

Vancouver Police said the investigation is ongoing and that they're still looking for the other occupants.
