Boy, 12, takes mom’s Mercedes for joyride B A

The Denver Post - - DENVER & THE WEST -

edge­wa­ter» 12-year-old boy is in big trou­ble af­ter tak­ing his mom’s Mercedes on a joyride early Satur­day and crash­ing into a parked car.

Edge­wa­ter Po­lice Chief John Mackey says the mother left the keys to her car on a ta­ble and was un­aware her child was miss­ing un­til she was con­tacted by po­lice.

Mackey says po­lice saw the car mov­ing slowly with­out its lights on and tried to stop it.

The car ran a red light and went sev­eral blocks be­fore mak­ing a sharp turn and hit­ting a parked ve­hi­cle.

The boy and two com­pan­ions in the car were not se­ri­ously in­jured. They have been re­turned to their par­ents while the district at­tor­ney looks into pos­si­ble charges.
