A youth crashed a Metro (D.C.) Police cruiser following a short joyride after a sergeant left his keys in the ignition, police said.

The youth, who escaped after the crash, took off with the squad on Monday afternoon in Southeast Washington while the sergeant investigated a missing person complaint.

The joyride began in the 1600 block of Fort Davis Place and ended a few blocks away at R Street SE, near Pennsylvania and Alabama avenues when the youth crashed into a barrier or fence near a house. The car had only minor damage, reports the Washington Post.
