Teenagers take hearse, with body inside, and crash during joyride, police say

Police in Columbus said two teenagers stole a hearse with a body inside and took it on a quick joyride before crashing into a utility pole.

According to the report from Columbus police, the two teenagers hijacked the vehicle outside a funeral home Thursday after finding the keys in the ignition.

The teens -- who have not been arrested -- hit another vehicle with the hearse after witnesses said they saw them doing donuts in a school parking lot nearby.

The owner of the funeral home said there was no serious damage to the body or casket.
