It was a frightening scene early Monday morning when residents of a Toledo, Ohio neighborhood found a young, crying girl behind the wheel of a car. The 10-year-old girl, who has a developmental disability, had taken off in her family’s car and crashed into four vehicles all while sleepwalking. As WTOL News 11 reports, there were no serious injuries.
The family said their daughter has been known to sleepwalk, but nothing like this has happened before. According to WTOL, police say the young girl was, “cited with failure to control, not wearing a seatbelt, and operating a vehicle without a license.” They also made sure to mention that citing her was standard procedure, and helps victims get help from their insurance company to cover the cost of repairs. She will have to appear in juvenile court, but it’s possible the case will be thrown out. The neighbors who had their cars damaged said they’re just happy the 10-year-old is ok.
