Hit-and-run driver turns out to be a 7-year-old
Filed under: Health & Safety: Babies
Police in Kentucky were tracking down a van after a hit-and-run accident, only to find that there was a 7-year-old
behind the wheel. The boy was actually sitting on his dad's lap, steering the wheel, while his "semiconscious" father
worked the pedals. Police finally caught up with them on a highway. According to the report on CNN, the father told the
police that they were on their way to Florida and that his son was going to get them there. The man's other son, age
three, was also in the van.
The dad now faces charges of resisting arrest, carrying a concealed weapon, leaving the scene of an accident and driving under the influence. The boys were taken into custody by social services.
