ORANGE BEACH, Ala. (AP) — Police who chased a car for miles along a highway at
speeds up to 100 mph said the driver was drunk, hardly a rarity in this resort
town. But there was more: When they looked inside the flipped vehicle with guns
drawn, they found an 11-year-old girl at the wheel.
I heard it on the radio the other day while my 3 screaming children and I sat at the border for over an hour in a steaming hot car trying to cross into the states so I could make a bank deposit. That, I suppose, is a story for another day.
Anyway, my immediate reaction was something along the what horrible parents she must have line, but I thought about it and came to the conclusion that I'd better not judge too harshly.
My kid's totally going to do something like that. Soon.
