Special needs teenager crashes van into house

 Police are investigating an incident where a special needs teenager crashed into a home.

Officers say the 16-year-old boy took a van from the home where he lives and wound up going on a joy ride.  They say the teen plowed through several yards and crashed through a neighbor's gate.  He ultimately crashed the full-size van into a pillar supporting the garage, spinning around 180 degrees.  Police say the boy suffered minor injuries.

Fire crews say the boy was taken to a local hospital to be evaluated.  The house turned out to be vacant.  Police are now investigating whether the teen may face any punishment.
