PLANO, Ill. (CBS) — A Plano boy who was not old enough to drive ended up in the hospital, along with a 16-year-old girl who joined him, after he allegedly took his parents’ car without permission and crashed it.

The 15-year-old boy, whose name was withheld, was driving southbound on Needham Road in the Kendall County town at 2:54 p.m., when he lost traction and struck a tree near Hale Street, according to a release from the county Sheriff’s office.

He and the 16-year-old female passenger, both from Plano, suffered minor injuries in the crash, the release said. He was taken to Valley West Hospital, while the girl was taken to Rush Copley Medical Center in Aurora.

Officials learned he was driving his parents’ car without permission, the release said. He was arrested for not having a valid driver’s license.
