A 12-year-old boy suffered a serious head injury this week after his 13-year-old buddy wrecked a stolen car following a Tacoma crime spree, police said.
"This was a bad deal all around," police spokeswoman Loretta Cool said.
The action began at the University of Puget Sound about 12:05 a.m. Tuesday when a security guard saw three people acting suspiciously near a Nissan Xterra, Cool said. The trio climbed into the car as the guard approached and drove off, she said. The guard found broken glass where the Xterra had been parked, realized it had just been stolen and called police.
