On Sept. 28, troopers received multiple panicked 911 calls reporting a reckless driver on I-75 south.

Miami County officers first responded to the grandmother’s house on North Third Street in Tipp City.

“I let my grandson, 9 years old, take my car keys to listen to my phone on the radio,” Tracy King said. “I walked out. My car was gone.”

The boy eventually crashed into two other vehicles on Main Street and Garber Drive after he exited I-75 north in Tipp City.

No one was injured during the incident and the boy was released to his grandmother.

Troopers said a child that age cannot be sent to juvenile detention for non-violent crimes, but could face traffic charges.
