Five Year-Old Driver Pulled Over by Cops on Way to Buy Lamborghini

(CBS News) A Utah Highway Patrol trooper got a pint-sized surprise when he pulled over a 5-year-old driver who was swerving so badly he thought the driver needed medical attention.

Trooper Rick Morgan said the boy didn’t respond to his lights but pulled over when he hit his siren on Interstate 15 in Ogden on Monday.

“I approached the vehicle and I was expecting to find somebody who needed an ambulance or paramedics,” Morgan said.

But Morgan said when the window came down, it was pretty clear that it was “a very underaged driver who was behind the wheel.”

The boy was sitting on the edge of his seat to reach the brake pedal, Morgan said.

CBS Salt Lake City affiliate KUTV reports the boy, named Adrian, had managed to get the keys of his family’s Dodge Journey and drive it two miles through Ogden, Utah and onto Interstate 15 when Morgan spotted him.

“Where did you come from? How did you get this car?” dash camera video recorded the baffled trooper say to Adrian.

Morgan said the boy told him he was going to his sister’s house — in California.

The boy told another trooper he wanted to buy a Lamborghini when he got there and then flashed open his wallet showing his cash to purchase his dream car: $3.
