A 13-year-old who took her parents' SUV crashed it early this morning on a dirt road and was killed.
Haley Eller of Summerville drove off in her parents' Ford Explorer sometime last night or early this morning, Berkeley County Coroner Glenn Rhoad said. She stopped at a friend's house and her friend's father called Haley's father to alert him, Rhoad said. But before her dad could arrive, Haley drove off again.
Moments later, Haley's father found the Explorer, wrecked on a bridge on Turtle Pond Road. Haley was dead inside.
Authorities are not sure why Haley took the SUV.
