4-Year-Old Boy Steals Mom's Car for a Joy Ride - as part of the news series by GeoBeats.
The old phrase “boys and their toys” doesn't just refer to grown men.
One 4-year-old boy in Sweden proves young men can appreciate cars too.
And not just the Matchbox kind. The young child reportedly stole his mother’s keys while she slept, hopped in her vehicle and drove the car almost one third of a mile before getting into a minor crash. The uninjured boy was taken back home by a local store employee, leaving his mother dumbfounded. She says “I had the car keys in my jacket pocket and it was hanging so high that I thought he couldn’t reach it. “Police officials were also amazed, because not only did the child travel a decent distance, he also successfully made 3 right turns before smashing.
In 2009, another pint sized driver hit the road. The 7-year-old boy reportedly took the family vehicle for a little joy ride in an effort to avoid going to church. Police responded to a report of reckless driving and followed him for 10 blocks at speeds up to 45 miles per hour before finally stopping him.
