DUTCH BOY, 4, TAKES MOTHER’S CAR FOR A JOYRIDE
A four-year-old boy could have a future in Formula One after taking his mum’s car for a drive in the Netherlands.
Police in the central city of Utrecht said the child crashed into two parked cars on Saturday, before leaving the scene in his pajamas and bare feet.
Concerned bystanders called police after spotting him walking down the street alone in the cold.
No one was hurt during his escapade, with police saying on Instagram they had discovered a “new Max Verstappen”.
Police wrote that the child had woken up on Saturday when his father went to work, and taken his mother’s car keys “to go for a drive”.
After officers were called to pick him up, a report came in of an abandoned vehicle near-by, which appeared to have hit two parked cars.
It was registered to the boy’s mother, the force said, and officers called her. Handing over the phone to the youngster, police said he mimicked driving and made gestures of turning a steering wheel.[BBC]
