ROSCOMMON, Mich. (AP) — Authorities say a 9-year-old boy was hospitalized after his 10-year-old brother apparently ran him over with a stolen car in Michigan's northern Lower Peninsula.

TV stations WWTV and WPBN report the Roscommon County sheriff's department responded early Sunday after a woman called to report her sons had broken into a car dealership and driven cars in the lot.

The boys were turned over to their parents, but deputies were called to the boys' home several hours later after the 9-year-old got pinned under a car. Deputies say the boys returned to the Roscommon dealership, stole cars from the lot and drove around Roscommon.

The department says one ended up in a snow bank and the other in the boys' yard. The boy was freed and airlifted to a Flint hospital.
