According to a Pennsylvania State Police news release obtained by CBS 21, the teenager allegedly stabbed his aunt on Feb. 2 at around 6:45 a.m. while she was driving on Susquehannock Drive and Bethesda Church Road in Martic Township, Lancaster County. 

Citing the release, the TV station reported that the 15-year-old boy was in the back seat of his aunt's vehicle when he stabbed her, causing her to partially exit the road into oncoming traffic, where she stopped her vehicle.
