A 5-year-old boy was pulled over by a police officer while driving his parent’s car to California to buy a Lamborghini with just with $3 in his possession.
Trooper Rick Morgan noticed a driver inside an SUV driving erratically and switching between lanes on a freeway in Ogden, Utah just before noon on Monday. When he pulled the car over, Morgan said he was shocked to find a young boy behind the wheel.
‘My speedometer showed 32 miles-per-hour,’ Morgan told Fox 13. ‘It amazed me that when he heard my siren, he did pull over and stop.’
‘When I got to the window and the window came down, I wasn’t quite sure what to think. It was pretty clear when the window came down, it was a young, very underage driver.’
When asked where he had been driving to, the boy replied ‘California.’
The 5-year-old reportedly told troopers that he left the house following an argument with his mother after she told him she wouldn’t buy him a Lamborghini.
Police say he had been trying to reach his sister’s house in California and had planned to buy a Lamborghini when he got there, with the three dollars in his pocket.
The boy has since been reunited with his parents.
