ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say an 11-year-old girl hid in a closet and called 911 when three would-be robbers broke into her home.
Orange County Sheriff’s spokeswoman Jane Watrel tells local news outlets it was just after 1 p.m. Tuesday when the girl saw an adult and two juveniles break into the home. She hid and called for help.
Watrel says the suspects left in a stolen car, but a deputy spotted them and began following the car. They continued for about four miles before slamming into a flatbed truck. The suspects were taken to a hospital. Their names and conditions haven’t been released.
The girl was not harmed.
The truck driver the suspects’ car hit was treated for minor injuries.
No further details were immediately available.
