Police probe how 14-year-old got keys before crash

MAHAFFEY — State police have been trying to figure out how a 14-year-old boy got the keys to a car that he crashed into a western Pennsylvania house while driving with a 3-year-old passenger.

Troopers say the crash happened Friday night on Route 219 in Bell Township, Clearfield County.

They say the boy lost control of the car on a turn, hit an embankment and crashed into the porch and side of the house.

Police tell WJAC-TV the car landed on its driver’s side, and both boys were taken to Punxsutawney Hospital, as was someone in the house who was hit with debris from the crash. None of the injuries was believed to be serious.

It was not immediately clear if police had filed any charges by Monday. The driver’s name isn’t being released because of his age.
