Police: Teens Take School Buses On Bumper-Car Ride

CHICAGO - Police are searching for a group of young vandals who played bumper cars with a bunch of school buses, NBC5 reported.

Chicago police said 10 to 15 teenagers broke into a bus-storage facility on the South Side and took several buses on a joyride. The incident happened on the 1000 block of West 111th Street at about 9:20 p.m. Saturday, police News Affairs Officer David Banks said.

When it was over, there was almost $100,000 in damage. One bus was crashed into a nearby storage facility, causing serious structural damage to the building.

Police said the juveniles had easy access to the vehicles because the keys were apparently left in the ignitions.

I think thats common to leave the keys in the busses. Alot of construction sites often leave keys in the bulldozers and stuff as well. Back in High School a buddy found keys in a bull dozer and decided to take it for a short drive. He had worked in construction with his father before so knew how to drive the thing. All he did was move it about 10 lots over to a house which was just completed. He parked it in the freshly paved driveway!

most construction equipment keys are the same....that's no discovery.

I think the story is funny. A buddy of mine did something similar with a bunch of those bucket lifts.... drove them all over a construciton site till they tipped one over...
