WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Wichita police say a 15-year-old boy is hospitalized with a head injury after four minors took a car for a joyride.

Police say two 15-year-olds, a 12-year-old and a 9-year-old took their mother’s rental car without permission Sunday morning and started driving around the neighborhood.

Sgt. Scott Brunow says the 12-year-old was driving when one of the 15-year-olds tried to climb out onto the vehicle’s back end. The 15-year-old slid off and hit his head on the street.

The 12-year-old drove the injured teenager to the hospital.
