Two sisters, ages 11 and 7, avoided catastrophe and injury on Saturday after their family's SUV flipped on Sanders Road off Bees Ferry Road after hitting a gas pump.

Here's the kicker: the 11-year-old was driving.

The girls took the family vehicle out for a joy ride some time around 3 a.m. on Saturday night, struck a gas pump and later flipped the SUV.
