Girl, 6, crashes car in bid to see dad
« on: February 04, 2013, 05:03:33 PM »
I just found this so amusing (well, ok, not for the people whose vehicles she hit and, in any case, she's ok).

Pittsburgh police said a determined 6-year-old girl didn't hurt anyone when she crashed her mother's car while trying to drive across town to visit her father.

Police haven't released the name of the girl whose mother was reportedly still sleeping when the girl took the woman's car keys about 9 a.m. Sunday.

Police Sgt. Jerry Parker said the little girl is tall for her age, though that doesn't quite explain how she learned to drive, saying, "How she knew how to operate a car, your guess is as good as mine."...

According to police, the girl hit two parked vehicles, pushing one of them into a third, before eventually coming to a stop after hitting a utility pole.

“We heard a boom when she hit the vehicle,’ Hawkins said. “Then I was up there to grab her and pull her out. I turned the key off and put the car in park. She was still trying to drive.”

The story concludes with the statement, Authorities are still investigating, but haven't said if anyone will face charges.

Off to the hoosegow with this kid (or maybe a good spanking).

Never underestimate what kids are capable of trying!

Poor kid, she just wanted to see her dad. Too bad it wasn't an intact family!
“Let each citizen remember at the moment he is offering his vote that he is not making a present or a compliment to please an individual – or at least that he ought not so to do; but rather he is executing one of the most solemn trusts in human society for which he is accountable to God and his country.” Samuel Adams, April 16, 1781.
