Juveniles Steal Family Car and Crash, Three Sent to Local Hospital
SAN ANGELO, TEXAS -- Shortly before 9 p.m. this evening, a major motor vehicle accident occurred in the 100 block of E 39th street.
Sgt. Kelly Lajoie explained that two juveniles, thought to be 15 and 12 years old, decided to take their parents car and brought along their 3-year-old sibling. The juveniles managed to drive around the block several times before their parents came out to find them driving the car.
At one point, the driver, one of the older siblings, decided to stop the car, but as one of the parents attempted to take the younger sibling out of the car, the driver floored it and hit a nearby electricity pole.
There were no skid marks visible to investigating officers, signaling that the brakes were never hit before impact.
All occupants of the vehicle have been transported to a nearby hospital for unknown injuries. None of the car's occupants were licensed drivers.
Sgt. Lajoie noted that the SAPD's Child Crimes Division has been notified to investigate the scene.
As of right now, no citations have been given. Further charges are pending the outcome of the investigation from Child Crimes investigators.
No power outages were reported from the accident.
