You may have run away from home when you were younger, but I bet you never did this…

When Nebraska state troopers, near Kearney, finally stopped an SUV they had been chasing at 100 mph, they found a 13-year-old girl driving and an 11-year-old boy in the passenger seat. The 16-minute chase ended when a trooper performed a “tactical vehicle intervention.”

During a search of the vehicle troopers allegedly found a gun, a small amount of marijuana, and drug paraphernalia.

The kids were placed in protective custody; no info has been released on their parents or how the two kids from Colorado wound up driving an SUV in Nebraska.
