Boy, 13, Charged After Wrecking Father's SUV Near Harrington

HARRINGTON, Del.- Delaware State Police say they have cited a 13-year-old boy after he took his father’s vehicle and crashed into a telephone pole near Harrington.

Troopers said the incident occurred shortly after 7 a.m. Wednesday as the boy, who is from Harrington, took off in a 2006 Toyota 4Runner westbound on Bloomfield Drive, just west of Cloverfield Lane. Police said the vehicle traveled off the north side of the road and into a ditch before the passenger’s side struck a utility pole, sheering it off at the base. The 4Runner continued westbound for a short distance before coming to a stop in the roadway, investigators said.

The 13-year-old was initially transported to Milford Memorial Hospital before being transferred to A.I. DuPont for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. Troopers cited him with careless driving, failure to remain in a single lane, no insurance in possession, no registration in possession and driving without a valid license.
