Comment on this story
IOL mot pic 12-year-old in car chase . Video grab shows the bakkie leading several police cars.

The bad guy in this car chase through South Carolina and into Charlotte, North Carolina is a 12-year-old girl, who'd gotten into a fight with her father that left her with a broken finger, then snuck out of the house and stole a bakkie from a local car park so she could go and stay with a friend.

The cops spotted her, and chased her at up to 125km/h until they finally managed to box her in and stop her.

We don't condone car theft, but you have to admire her gumption.
