*Forgive me. This may not be the newest story on the block, but boy is it a hum-dinger! Texas cops didn’t know what hit ’em, pun intended, when they realized the car they were chasing down the highway at warp speed was being driven by a 12-year-old. The girl, who also had her 7-year-old sister in tow, had stolen grandma’s car.
Amazed at her skill behind the wheel, officers saw the girl weaving in and out of traffic; even driving the wrong way down a highway, and at the end of it all she had only scraped two cars along the way.
No crashes. No head-on collisions. No T-bones. Nothing
And wait until you hear where Missy was going in such a hurry.
To see her “boyfriend.”
Grandma’s Chevy Cruiser was finally stopped remotely by Onstar.
Whew! You can bet their stock is about to go up!
Check out the longer version of this incredible story via a report by KPRC 2 Houston:
“The younger girl was terrified. Went right into the arms of our officer when it was over,” Montgomery Police Chief Jim Napolitano said Friday.
KPRC 2 has obtained the dash cam video of the police pursuit. In the video, the girl drives on the wrong side of the road, the shoulder on the wrong side of the road and barely squeezes between two vehicles stopped in a lane of traffic on the other side.
During the chase, police said the kids hit two or three vehicles before finally pulling over at Montgomery High School. There were no injuries.
“The vehicle being pursued hit multiple vehicles along 105 resulting in minor damage and no injuries, thank goodness. The two juveniles were involved and no injuries at that point either,” Jim Napolitano, Montgomery Police Department, said.
According to a witness who was driving on Highway 105 with three kids in the car, their vehicle was almost hit by the kids, knocking a mirror off the car. The witness then saw the granddaughter driving on the shoulder in the wrong direction of the highway. Police said the chase speeds reached close to 100 mph.
“The fastest that I saw was 126,” J.D. Lambright, Montgomery County attorney, said after reviewing dashcam video.
The chase ended when police notified General Motor Co.’s OnStar call center and asked that the car a 2014 Chevy Cruz, be remotely shut down.
The car rolled to a stop near Montgomery High School.
Police said the 12-year-old was taken into custody and the 5-year-old was picked up by the grandmother.
The 12-year-old girl is charged with theft of property over $30,000. More charges are pending.
