TIPP CITY — News Center 7 has obtained cruiser and body camera footage of a 9-year-old boy who is accused of stealing his grandmother’s car and taking it on a joyride through Miami and Montgomery counties.
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.
