Boy, 5, steals mum’s car and drives two miles before realising flaw in escape plan

A five-year-old boy stole his parents’ car after his mum refused to buy him a Lamborghini and managed to drive two miles before being pulled over by the police.

The Utah Highway Patrol officer who stopped him couldn’t believe his eyes when he saw a five-year-old sitting in the driver’s seat.

He had initially thought the driver was impaired.

The five-year-old explained to the confused officer that his parents were at work and his older sibling was watching over him.

But, without his babysitter’s knowledge, he had managed to get hold of his parents car keys.

And the youngster had only one destination in mind when he set out on his epic escape – California, which is a 12 HOUR drive from his home in Utah.

And, why California you ask?

To buy himself his dream supercar… with only $3 in his pocket.

The young boy made it two miles before being pulled over by highway officer Rick Morgan.

Rick said: “He was upset and on the verge of tears and it was short one-word answers that he gave.

“His parents said that he had not driven before, this was the first time that he did anything like this.”

Thankfully, he was not injured, nor was anybody else.

They took to Twitter to share the news: “One of our Troopers in Weber Co. initiated a traffic stop on what he thought was an impaired driver.
