Two Rhode Island 12-year-olds went on a joy ride in the family BMW on Wednesday that ended in another state.
Police said they've never seen a case quite like this one, but fortunately, it has a happy ending. The 12-year-olds left around midnight when family members were sleeping.
The pair ran out of gas in Connecticut, about 60 miles away from where they started.
"For two 12-year-olds to be on the highway with a car in the middle of the night is extremely dangerous and I think were fortunate the car did run out of gas," Lt. Phillip Gingerella, of the Charlestown Police Department, told WJAR-TV.
