FAIRBORN, Ohio (WDTN) – A teen trying to take off with someone’s ride crashed it into a house Wednesday morning.
Police told 2 NEWS a 14-year-old walking to school spotted a pickup idling in a driveway along Dayton-Yellow Springs Road in Fairborn.
He hopped in, and in an attempt to pull a quick U-turn, smashed into the house next door.
The truck hit where a bedroom is located and one of the homeowners was jolted awake by the impact and a shower of drywall. She was not injured.
The teen took off running and police caught up with him at Fairborn High School.
A Fairborn officer said the teen “faces a slew of charges”, including auto theft, fleeing a scene, and driving without a license, as well as a number of traffic violations.
