Dad’s car stolen by 7-year-old

Schoolboy speeds off in Utah, USA, to avoid going to church



It seems some people will go to any lengths to avoid something they don’t like, and for the 7-year-old boy in Utah, if it involved a high speed police chase in his dad’s car, then so be it!

Desperate to dodge going to the church, he stole his dad’s car keys and set off on the road. Police began the chase after reports of reckless driving, only to discover that the wacky racer behind the wheel was a small boy. Fortunately, no one was hurt in the incident and the car and driver returned home unharmed.


The runaway driver was too young to be prosecuted but has reportedly had a stern talking to from his family, with his dad vowing to hide his keys somewhere safe in the future.
