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.
