Associated Press

January 03, 2011

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) – Police in Harrisburg say a 12-year-old girl is facing charges after leading officers on a high-speed chase in a stolen car.

Investigators say the girl stole a car early Saturday morning in Newport, Perry County, then drove to Harrisburg. Police there pursued the car, which reached speeds of up to 80 mph while sometimes traveling the wrong way on a one-way street.

Police say the girl struck three light poles before they took her into custody.

No injuries were reported.

    And they say the game Grand theft Auto is non influential. Learn how to steal a car and drive them all within the comfort of the home. I vote for the parents to receive "Parent(s) of the Year!" NOT!!! WTH.... Thank god no one was seriously injured of killed.

    If she want's to be a young criminal, introduce her to the juvenile justice system forthwith. She's very lucky no one was injured or killed but I doubt she has a clue about that...

    The drive she took to Harrisburg is a very busy highway that I don't even like to drive. People drive fast and out of control. She must have learned on her X-Box on how to drive. Need For Speed high speed! LOL

    Well she will have a good list of charges to start her young life... GTA, Property damage, evading, eluding police, reckless endangerment. I can think of more... Good luck to her and the rest of her life. I really hope she has learned a very valuable lesson. And to the parents... WHERE WERE YOU AT? Hope they all learn from this!

    Questions: 1) Where the heck were her parents? 2) How in the world did she learn how to drive a car?!

    And 80mph going the opposite direction of a one-way street? It's a miracle nobody was killed!

    Wow the thought of stealing a car at twelve never crossed my mind. But then again that was more than 40 years ago for me. Glad she didn't hurt or kill anyone. and bump the comments before me too...
