12-Year-Old Driver Caught in Bryan County

Posted:

KTEN has an interesting story for you out of Bryan County today.

Over the weekend, police began what seemed to be just another case of a stolen vehicle, but this story has a surprising twist to it.

Durant police say they caught up with a 12-year-old girl driving a stolen pick up truck friday night.

KTEN's Jocelyn Lockwood has the story.

Police say the 12-year-old girl knew she wasn't supposed to be in the drivers seat, but possible volunteered.

They say there were other teens in the ca, none of them old enough to drive.  

Police say an officer conducting a license check noticed a white pick-up truck driving past.

When the vehicle came back stolen he made the stop, but never expected to find a 12-year-old behind the wheel.

Police say this is not only unusal, but it also poses a danger for you on the roads.

After she was taken into custody, police say the 12-year-old claimed someone gave her the car.
