    Police: 8-year-old boy driving car; sister killed

    PHOENIX — An 8-year-old boy was driving his mother's car on a nighttime joyride with his 6-year-old sister when it crashed into a pole, fatally injuring the girl, police said Thursday.

    The girl and her brother, who received minor injuries in the crash, were both in their pajamas, said Sgt. Steve Martos.

    From link above ==> Officers spotted the vehicle, but when they tried to pull it over, the driver veered to the right and collided with a pole, Martos said.

    I would like to know if the officer who attempted to pull the vehicle over used sirens and flashing lights or not.

    It’s not always an easy job to protect them from kidnappers, molesters, and abusers. Sometimes it’s even harder to save them from themselves.

    Police identified the girl as Aaliyah Felder. They said her seatbelt wasn't fastened and the air bag in front of her didn't deploy.......

    Two responding patrol officers spotted the vehicle, and it crashed "almost instantly" after police turned on their emergency lights, Martos said. The police cars did not have their sirens on, he said. It's not known how fast the boy was driving.

    From what police have pieced together, it appeared the children drove south about 3 miles from their home and then backtracked, Martos said.

    Martos said there was no immediate indication that the officers did anything wrong.
