A 14-year-old St. Paul boy is in custody after crashing an empty school bus Monday morning inRoseville.
MNN reports Police Lieutenant Lorne Rosand saying the teen told officers he observed an “abandoned bus” at a gas station and felt compelled to drive it back to the Centerline Bus Company Depot. Actually the driver had gone inside to get a cup of coffee and left the keys in the ignition.
Rosand says the boy made it back to the bus company depot, got scared when he saw an employee, left the depot, ran a red light and continued into another gas station when he struck several groups of gas pumps.
Authorities say it’s very fortunate no one was injured.
