When Orchard Park Police discovered a minivan driving without headlights or taillights early Saturday morning, they also found another surprise.
A 14-year-old boy was at the wheel. And inside were five passengers, all of them 13 or 14 years old.
Police said the minivan was driving southbound on South Buffalo Street at about 3:45 a.m. when Lt. Greg Sheppard tried to stop it. It then struck a curb and stopped.
The boy, who will face charges of unauthorized use of a vehicle in family court, was released to his parents. The five other children were also released to their parents.
