Teen on joyride in grandmother's SUV crashes into four cars, flees on foot
A 15-year-old boy who took his grandmother's SUV on a joyride, crashing into four parked cars and fleeing on foot, has been arrested, Glendale police said this week.
Glendale police on Monday tracked down the La Crescenta teen, whose name was withheld because he's a minor, after his grandmother told officers she didn't know who took her Mercedes SUV on Oct. 31, Sgt. Tom Lorenz said. The Mercedes was left at the crash scene and traced back to her, he said.
The teen allegedly took his grandmother's car without permission that night, visited a friend and went for a joyride, Lorenz said.
The teen allegedly sped through a stop sign in the 4800 block of Maryland Avenue that night and lost control of the Mercedes, which crashed into four parked cars. He and his friend fled the scene and headed home, Lorenz said.
