PHOENIX — A teenage boy may face criminal-damage charges and the wrath of two sets of parents after driving a car into several parked vehicles in suburban Phoenix.
Glendale Police spokeswoman Tracy Breeden said the 17-year-old smashed into seven cars early Thursday while he was the behind the wheel of a car that belonged to a relative of his girlfriend.
There were no injuries.
He sped away from an apartment complex in a red BMW convertible, but not before several residents called police.
“He was upset because he couldn’t contact his girlfriend,” Breeden said.
“We don’t think it was intentional, we just think he lost control of the car.”
The boy’s reckless driving also left damage to the parking structure, police said.
“One bad decision can change your life!” police tweeted out.
