10-year-old ticketed after crashing parent’s SUV smack into the DMV

A driver crashing their vehicle into the DMV – the agency responsible for deciding who can drive – is a little odd. What makes this story even more outlandish is that a 10-year old was behind the wheel.

According to the Inquisitr on Monday, a Denver woman parked her SUV outside of a Department of Motor Vehicles office on Cottonwood Drive in the suburb of Parker. Police Sgt. Andy Coleman says the woman left her 12- and 10-year-old daughters in the vehicle while she went inside, evidently leaving the keys in the vehicle.

The younger daughter then got behind the wheel, started the truck up, and took her older sister for a brief ride – directly through the front DMV’s front window.

The Associated Press said “the SUV rolled slowly through the office's front window until the mother jumped in to stop it from causing more damage. No one was injured.”

In Colorado, a child as young as 10 can be charged with a crime. Therefore, the police did indeed give out a ticket, not to the mom, but to the 10-year-old, who was cited for “reckless driving.” Coleman says the reason he didn't ticket the mother was because she did not leave her vehicle running.
