A 13-year-old accidentally reversed her mother’s car into a Duluth apartment, police said.

The girl told an officer that she had intended to drive the car to the RaceTrac gas station around the corner from the Heights at Sugarloaf apartment complex, a police report said. She said she accidentally left the car in reverse instead of putting it in drive, causing the car to back into a nearby apartment and through a window.


Nobody was injured, though there was damage to the apartment that was struck. Neither the girl nor her mother were charged.

“Because she was on private property, she was only in trouble with her mother,” the responding officer wrote in his police report.

MARTA CEO Jeffrey Parker has had an eventful first year. Under his leadership, MARTA has refined expansion plans in Atlanta and Clayton County. He also negotiated a labor agreement that gives big raises to many employees. But voters in Gwinnett County rejected a transit referendum that would bring MARTA farther north. MARTA is "critically important to the region, just like the road system," Parker said.
