A 12-year-old girl drove her Mom’s minivan into a porch early Tuesday morning in Council Bluffs.

The Omaha World Herald reports the accident happened at about 2:00 AM Tuesday at 712 27th Avenue.  The newspaper says a Council Bluffs Police Officer saw a 2004 Kia Sedona driving with no headlights that turned onto 27th Avenue where it jumped the curb and hit the porch.  The home sustained about $800 damage.

According to the The Omaha World Herald, the 12-year-old girl told officers she took her mother’s van to go to Casey’s while her mother was asleep.  The newspaper reports the girl was charged with suspicion of driving without headlights, no driver’s license and operation without owner’s consent. After being taken to the county jail, she was released to the custody of her mother.
