Two little girls in Texas led officers on a 110 mph chase after a 12-year-old took her grandma’s car to try to see her boyfriend, according to police.
The preteen from the New Caney area is believed to have taken the keys to the vehicle early Thursday evening while her grandmother was sleeping, according to Montgomery Police Chief James Napolitano.
He told the Daily News that his officers reached speeds of well over 100 mph as they pursued the driver and the 7-year-old sister that she dragged along for her joyride.
The pair headed out on Highway 105 through the outlying areas of Houston, using the shoulder to drive the wrong way past stunned onlookers.
Napolitano said that three cars were sideswiped as the driver tried to avoid police, but that there was no major damage or injuries.
The bizarre chase lasted for 11 miles after police in Conroe spotted the speeding car around 5:30 p.m., according to KPRC.
The chase ultimately ended in a high school parking lot after authorities got in contact with auto security company OnStar, who stopped the car, Napolitano said.
The police chief said that the 7-year-old sister was crying as she was taken in the arms of officers. She was given back to relatives.
He added that the suspect, who will likely face charges of evading arrest, began speaking about driving to go see her 18-year-old boyfriend during her apprehension.
