Police: 14-year-old driving car that crashed with teens

A teenager is in critical condition following a single car crash that left five other teens injured over the weekend.

Police say the driver is 14-years-old and was speeding.

It happened Saturday just after 8 o'clock at night in Henderson near Cadence Street and Reunion Drive.

When news of the cash spread, parents in the neighborhood were in a panic worried their children may have been in the car that drove off the street.

Families were shocked and wanted to know why a 14-year-old was behind the wheel.

A large mesquite tree was broken in half after police say the teen driver, who was speeding along Cadence Street, lost control and jumped the curb. The posted speed limit is 25 miles-per-hour.

"They launched off one tree and landed in another and I'm actually surprised any of them are still alive," said Abe Klein, who heard the crash. "It was bad."

He is in charge of landscaping in the Anthem community. ... Read More
