6-year-old’s joy ride ends in crash


PITTSBURG.–   The need for speed is tempting for a young driver in Pennsylvania.

Police say a 6-year-old girl got behind the wheel after she grabbed the keys to her mother’s pickup truck.

The child didn’t get very far from home.

Investigators say she crashed into some utility poles as well as parked vehicles.

As it turns out, her mother was asleep while her daughter went for a joy ride.

The girl says she wanted to go see her father.

Fortunately, no injuries were reported.

There’s no word if any charges could be filed in the case.
