Video: Should a ten year old be cited for reckless driving for crashing car through Parker DMV?

On Monday, a ten-year-old Parker girl did what plenty of adults have probably fantasized about doing before thinking better of it: She crashed a sports-utility vehicle into a DMV.

The story made local newscasts. But now it's gone national thanks to the Parker Police Department's decision to release surveillance footage from inside the office, which vividly shows how close several people came to being killed. See videos, photos and details below.
