12-year-old boy, 7-year-old girl take parents’ Range Rover on 100-mile, multistate joy ride

 Police said a 12-year-old boy and his 7-year-old female cousin jumped into the boy’s parents’ Range Rover and embarked on a more than 100-mile drive across state lines.

Officials said the two allegedly did it because of a social media challenge, WCBS reportedThe 12-year-old was behind the wheel for five hours after they left his home in Queens, driving through New York and New Jersey, making it to the Delaware border.

At one point, state troopers caught up with them but the children sped away. Police didn’t follow at high speeds for the safety of the boys, WCBS reported.

The 12-year-old, whose name was not released, also tried to buy cookies using his dad’s credit card at a rest stop near New Jersey’s border with Delaware, on the Delaware side of the line.

The girl said the trip was fun, but that she had wished she could have driven.

Police told WCBS that the boy said he did it because of a social media challenge that tells people to drive until they run out of gas..
