Police Chase 12-year-old Driver

I have so many questions.

Why was a 12-year-old out at 4:30 a.m.?
How/why did he run from police...for 10 miles?
Nine-minutes to go 10 miles? That's better than 60 mph, right?
This happened in Carmel?

Oh, and...WHY WAS HE DRIVING A CAR?!!! I'm dying to know the whole story on this one. From Indychannel.com:

CARMEL, Ind. -- A 12-year-old boy was in critical condition Monday after leading officers on 10-mile car chase, police said. The pursuit ended Sunday morning in Carmel, a northern Indianapolis suburb, when the boy hit a tree, police said. A helicopter flew him to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis, Westfield police said.

A Westfield officer at 4:07 a.m. spotted a car traveling erratically near U.S. 31 and 216th Street, about 20 miles north of downtown Indianapolis, police said. The boy refused to pull over, leading Westfield officers and Hamilton County Sheriff's deputies on a nine-minute chase. He lost control of the car near 136th Street and U.S. 31 -- about 10 miles south of where police spotted him -- and struck the tree.
