HOUSTON – Authorities say a 12-year-old girl took her grandmother’s car for a joyride with her 7-year-old sister, striking other vehicles as she led police on a high-speed chase north of Houston.
The grandmother reported her car stolen Thursday. A Conroe officer spotted the vehicle and tried to stop it, but the girls sped away.
A chase ensued, with the girls side-swiping at least two other vehicles.
Montgomery police Sgt. Becky Lehn told KTRK-TV in Houston that the stolen car reached 100 mph before OnStar took control and slowed it to about 60 mph, then brought it to a stop at a high school.
