At about 2 PM on Sunday a 17-year old girl was driving along in her Mercedes SUV with her eight-year old sister. An 11-year old boy allegedly threw a water bottle at her, and she got pissed. She chased him down on his bicycle, ran up on the sidewalk and ran his ass down. The incident ended up with her car smashing into a tree and the boy under her car.
The driver and bicyclist both live in the same general area, the Arden-Arcade area of Sacramento, but it is believed they did not know each other.
The cops were unable to find the water bottle. They had no trouble finding the bicyclist, as he was still pinned under the SUV when they showed up. The driver was taken to juvenile hall, but since she was driving a Mercedes SUV I would be willing to guess she did not spend a lot of time there.
The boy was taken to UC Davis Medical Center with unknown injuries. Those injuries included a tire track print. It could have been worse. He it happened in Stockton or Oakland they probably would have just shot him.
