A young girl led police on a lengthy low-speed chase through South Carolina and into Charlotte, North Carolina Monday night. Police say the 12-year-old girl fought with her father earlier in the evening and took off from their South Carolina home after he fell asleep.
From there, the pre-teen stole a pickup truck from the local VFW parking lot with the intent of driving to a relative's house in Fort Mill. Officers originally spotted the girl thinking she was a drunk driver and a chase ensued. The girl reached speeds of up to 70 mph (112 km/h) and roamed Interstate 85 and 77 until police finally boxed her in and brought the scene to a stop.
No charges have been filed as of yet, though some reports indicate the girl was taken to a local hospital with a broken finger. It's unclear where that injury originates from.
