14-Year-Old Steals Mom’s Car, Crashes Near Elementary School
A 14-year-old Pasco girl could be facing charges after she allegedly took her mother's car without permission, and went on a joy ride with two other teens, ending in a crash near a Kennewick elementary school early Thursday morning.
Kennewick police say the white sedan was headed down 23rd Ave. when the driver failed to see the stop sign at the intersection with South Washington street. She tried to turn onto Washington but lost control, crashing through a fence at Washington Elementary.
One teen fled the scene, police are looking for them. The driver and second passenger who had run away, returned to the scene about 30 minutes later and were arrested. The mother said she awoke to find the girl had taken the car without her permission. She, of course, does not have a permit or license, being only 14.
