An online video showing the end of a teen's joy ride may be funny to viewers, but it wasn't a laughing matter for his mother or police in Vancouver.
The YouTube video of a white Porsche Cayenne repeatedly being smashed into the walls of a garage in a failed parking attempt has received over 90,000 views in less than 24 hours.
Const. Brian Montague said Wednesday that the car has been linked to a hit and run reported on June 16, when a white Porsche struck a parked vehicle in a residential neighbourhood.
He said a 16-year-old boy who does not have a licence had driven his mother's Porsche without her permission.
Police made the connection after receiving a video from the Insurance Corp. of B.C., showing a white Porsche Cayenne being rammed into the frame of a garage door.
“We looked at the video and were able to connect the dots quite quickly,” Montague said.
