A 12-year-old child was taken to a local hospital after she lead police on a low speed chase along I-77.
It was technically a chase, although State Highway Patrol Troopers say it never got over 20 miles an hour.
Just before midnight on Monday, Charlotte-Mecklenburg police tried to pull over an older model truck for a traffic citation along I-77, however the driver refused to pull over.
They called in Troopers to take over the pursuit.
Officials say they followed the truck for several miles before it finally pulled over on the shoulder just before the I-85 interchange.
The chase was captured by DOT cameras.
Troopers said when they approached the driver, the lone female inside starting yelling that she was just twelve years old.
The SHP reports she was from Gaffney, South Carolina, and had just been in an altercation with her father.
According to officials, she stole a truck from the parking lot of the VFW post in Gaffney and managed to start the truck without any keys.
Police say she took back roads up to Charlotte, but got lost once she got on the freeway.
Troopers say the girl was trying to get to a friend's house in Fort Mill, South Carolina.
Her father didn't want to be identified, but told WBTV he was relieved she was safe.
"Nobody just let me get away with what I've done, so you know, I'm sorry to say this, but like I said she's made her bed, and she's going to have to lay in it. I've done everything like I'm supposed to do as a parent, but if I keep bailing her out, she's never going to learn," he said.
She was taken to Carolinas Medical Center for treatment of a broken finger. Investigators were looking into how she broke her finger.
Police have charged her with several traffic violations including no operator's license, failure to maintain lane control, failure to head blue lights and siren and impede traffic by slow speed.
