Sharon Thompson of 4B Sunset Homes told the Hogansville Police Department she had asked her 12 - year - old daughter to see if the doors of her ear were locked. The child took the keys according to the police report and "took it upon herself to drive the car." She and a 10- year- old friend entered the car to back it up a lit- tle when she lost control and drove past three sets of apartment build- ings and into a neighbor's yard. Apparently, the friend became frightened as the car was moving and attempted to jump from the moving vehicle. Hogansville police were on the scene within three minutes. ...... gelltlY"  .,fier friend opened the ear door to jump when a guard pole caught the car door and her right arm, pinning the child and bending the door to the front fender of the car. Both children were taken to the West Georgia Medical Center in LaGrange for treatment. The 10-year-old suffered severe injuries to her right arm and the 12-year-old complained of injuries to her knee and was in possible shock, according to reports. Both were treated and released from the hospital. The car sustained moderate damage.
