BROOKSTON, Ind. (AP) - Northern Indiana police say a 12-year-old boy driving a stolen school bus led officers on a chase in parts of three counties before crashing into a parked truck and a home.

White County Sheriff Pat Shafer says the boy rode his bike from his home in Battle Ground to a residence near Brookston where the Frontier School Corp. bus was parked with its keys inside. Shafer tells WLFI-TV the boy, who's learning disabled, drove off in the bus.

Deputies followed the bus early Tuesday on roads in Tippecanoe, Carroll and White counties before it ran over police stop sticks and crashed in Brookston. The boy wasn't injured.

Tippecanoe County sheriff's Sgt. Brian Lowe says juvenile authorities are working with the boy's family to determine the best course of action.
