Boy, 8, Takes His Sister, 5, For A Drive: Crashes Into A Tree

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Police in Utah said an 8-year-old boy who crashed his parents` car into a tree told officers he was taking his 5-year-old sister to the store.

Ogden police Lt. Danielle Croyle said the boy and his sister climbed into the car and drove off around 2 a.m. Thursday and a police officer noticed the car crashed into a tree a short time later."


The parents should spank the 8-year-old brat so hard he won`t be able to sit in the driver`s seat or anywhere else for a few days.

Actually I place the blame on the parents, when I was eight there was no way I could have sneaked out of the house without my parents noticing.

The parents should lock the doors on the inside so that they can`t be unlocked without a key, to prevent any more late night adventures by their mischievous children.

The parents were soundly sleeping, and didn`t know the children had left home. The police aren`t going to press any charges against the parents.

All`s well that ends well, it`s a miracle the childen were unharmed.
