Okay, so this crime happened two weeks ago, but I won't apologize for the cheat. See, Thanksgiving week is one of the few stretches of time America ISN'T Taco Bell crazy, and the only crimes committed at the fast-food giant's many outlets were run-of-the-mill robberies--nothing truly outlandish. So let's hop on the wayback machine to Nov. 19, when teens in the Spokane Valley became leadfoots on their way to Taco Bell.

From the Seattle Times:

A 15-year-old driver speeding faster than 100 mph before crashing into a Spokane Valley power pole Friday night was taking a couple of intoxicated friends to get tacos, according to police reports.

Investigators want blood samples from the unlicensed driver. A 14-year-old passenger in the back seat who suffered a broken foot in the crash along the 3700 block of North Harvard Road in the Otis Orchards area said he saw the speedometer top 120 mph.

A 17-year-old boy in the front seat remained in critical condition at a hospital Monday. The 15-year-old driver injured his head and went to a hospital.
