11-Year-Old Steals Cement Truck, Takes it on Hour-Long Joyride [Video]
Did you ever steal your parents' car and take it out for a joy ride when you were younger Maybe you just drove it around the block. Maybe you just drove it up and down the driveway. Or maybe you did what this 11-year-old did (but probably not.)
The boy, from Dodge Center, Minn., stol a cement truck from a contractor Sunday, and then led police on a high-speed (do cement trucks go fast?) chase that lasted for an hour. During the chase, he reached peak speeds between 65 and 70 mph (I guess that answers our question), and eventually pulled off the highway and got blocked on a dead-end street.
The kid got out of the truck and attempted to flee, but he was apprehended by police. He is now being held in a juvenile detention facility pending charges.
