8yo takes car for destructive spin

Wednesday 12 Sep 2012 7:52 a.m.

Authorities say eight-year-old boy escaped injury after taking his mother's car for a spin through his suburban Buffalo, NY, neighbourhood and hitting several objects before his joy ride ended on a neighbour's lawn.

Police in the town of Cheektowaga tell media outlets that the boy won't be charged for his reckless driving early Monday morning.

The boy's mother says she woke up to find her son missing and called 911 because she thought he had been kidnapped. The boy was already in the car driving down the street.

When he came to a nearby road with heavy traffic, he decided to turn around and head back home. On the way, he jumped a curb, ran over a street sign, a fire hydrant and a fence before the car came to a rest on a neighbour's lawn.
