10-year-old crashes into home, says she wants to kill

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY. -- Police in Kentucky said a driver intentionally crashed a truck into a home last week, and she was only 10-years-old.

Joshua Pate arrived home just a few minutes before the crash happened.

Police said the young driver told them she crashed on purpose because she wanted to kill people.

Five children sat in the living room of the home, but no one was injured.

Pate credits the furniture for saving them.

"The love seat slid around and made kind of like a barrier," he said. "The back of the love seat is kind of tall ... and I think the kids just slid with the love seat."

American Red Cross is now helping Pate's family; it's expected to take about a month to repair their home. 

Louisville Police continue to investigate the incident.
