Madison teen arrested after crashing family's SUV during drunken joyride

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - A 15-year-old Madison boy has been arrested after crashing his family’s sport-utility vehicle into a tree.

Police say the teenager had been drinking before going on the joyride.

The accident happened at about 5 a.m. Friday. He was found at home when Madison police used the vehicle license plates to track him down.

The family didn’t know he had taken the SUV, which had been heavily damaged. The drive shaft of the vehicle was found 50 feet from the crash site.

There was extensive damage to the front end, three tires were falling off, the air bags had deployed and fuel was leaking onto the ground.
