July 24, 2018

GOOCHLAND, Va. (AP) — Police in Virginia say a 10-year-old boy and his 7-year-old passenger took a car and drove at least a dozen miles before crashing on an interstate.

Fire and rescue crews report that no one involved was injured.

Virginia State Police said in a statement that the boys took the black Lexus for a spin around 8:30 a.m. Tuesday in Fluvanna County, which is outside of Richmond.

Police said the car was reportedly “all over” the roadway on Interstate 64. One person followed the boys and called police. The Lexus eventually struck the caller’s Nissan Rogue before crashing into a median near Goochland.

Police in Fluvanna County took the boys home and are investigating their unauthorized use of the vehicle.

State police are handling the crash investigation.
