According to police, it was very fortunate that the fourteen year old girl was not hurt, nor did she cause harm to others, when she drove a car at breakneck speed into a crash fence. The car did however not come to a complete stop until it hit a lamppost. It is believed that the girl was driving at 140 kmh.

The police received a tip-off just before midnight last night that the girl was driving the car in question. Police officers spotted the vehicle shortly after and indicated to the driver to stop the car. The girl however did not comply.
She instead continued to drive along the main roads of Reykjavík but lost control of the vehicle near Holtagarðar shopping center, with the aforementioned consequences. The car was completely destroyed.
After receiving treatment, she was relocated to the appropriate institution and child protection services were contacted. The story was reported by all the major media today.
