Wis. girl, 11, accidentally drives through wall

SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (AP) -- Sheboygan police say an 11-year-old girl accidentally drove a car through a garage wall. She wasn't hurt but her father suffered a minor cut.

Police say the incident occurred Saturday afternoon when the girl tried to start the stick-shift car. The girl's father was standing outside the vehicle and had given her permission.

A Sheboygan Press report (http://shebpr.es/vBTOEm ) says the girl started the engine but released the clutch while the car was in gear. The car plunged through the wall of the garage and hit another vehicle.

The father tried to reach in and stop the car, sustaining a minor cut on his hand.

Police Sgt. Timothy Patton says no citations will be issued.
