BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — A teenager has been sentenced to up to three years in prison for injuring police officers while running from arrest.

The Erie County DA’s Office says the 16-year-old boy from Buffalo was found in a stolen car at a gas station on Bailey and Langfield Avenues back in June.

When police approached him, the teen put the car in reverse, and an open passenger door injured an officer.
