In the Houston, Texas area, an 11-year-old girl was pulled over by a police officer for speeding. She told the officer that her mother normally lets her drive but that this was the first time without adult supervision.
The girl was driving 11 miles over the speed limit, going 49 mph in a 35mph zone. Police in Pasadena reported the girl was driving her 10-year-old brother home.
The mother of the two children, Maria DeJesus Lopez, 25, has been charged with two counts of child endangerment and is free on $3,000 bond following a court appearance on Monday.
Police spokesman Vance Mitchell says the girl told authorities it wasn’t the first time her mother had allowed her to drive, but that this was the only time alone with her younger brother.
