Teen Takes, Crashes Friend's Family Car
(7-31-14) It started as a sleep over, and ended as crash in a stolen vehicle. Lancaster County Chief Deputy Sheriff Jeff Bliemeister says a 14-year-old boy from Hickman was spending the night with a friend at his home in Firth. When the friend didn't wake up the next morning around 830a.m., the teen decided to take a 2006 GMC Pickup parked in the driveway for a joyride. The Hickman boy also picked up two male friends, who are 15 and 16 years old. The adventure ended about four hours later when the 14-year-old crashed the pickup just east of Firth. Bliemeister says no one was injured, but the boy was cited for operating a vehicle without a valid operators license, careless driving and the unauthorized use of the vehicle.
