PHOENIX -- A 6-year-old girl has died after her and her 8-year-old brother went for a joy ride in their family’s car Wednesday night.
According to Phoenix Police Sgt. Steve Martos, the mother of the children reported the kids missing at about 10 p.m.
The mother told police she put her children to bed and when she realized they weren’t in their rooms she believed they were kidnapped.
Police received a number of calls of hit-and-run crash and children driving a vehicle near 19th Avenue and Buckeye Road.
Police made several attempts to stop the 8-year-old boy who was driving but the car veered to the right and hit a power pole, Martos said.
The 6-year-old girl died from her injures. The 8-year-old boy received a minor ankle injury.
