CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) - Police say an 11-year-old southeastern Tennessee boy is safe after driving his family’s truck to the next county.

A Tennessee Highway Patrol officer told WTVC-TV (https://bit.ly/2cuhu4Z) that the boy drove the truck, which had a trailer attached, from his home in Marion County to the western edge of Chattanooga in nearby Hamilton County. THP Sgt. Alan Bailey says the boy was found unharmed.
