Special needs boy smashes car into curb at Colorado Springs gas station


A 12-year-old special needs boy in Colorado Springs was apparently hungry, knew where he could get food and how he could get to a place where food was kept, police said.

And so he snatched his sister’s car keys and tried to drive there, according to a Colorado Springs police report.

A 911 emergency call came in at 4:45 a.m. Friday from a gas station on the 6300 block of North Carefree Circle, the police report says.

A convenience store clerk told a dispatcher he’d just witnessed a hit-and-run crash. But the driver only appeared to be around 10 years old, the clerk reported. The boy had smashed the vehicle into a curb and ran away.

Officers from the Stetson Hills Division of the Colorado Springs Police Department drove to the address and found an abandoned vehicle at North Carefree and Tutt Boulevard, the police report says.
