WEBER COUNTY, Utah (KTVX) – According to troopers with the Utah Highway Patrol, a boy was pulled over driving his parents’ car on the freeway Monday.
UHP said a trooper in Weber County initiated a traffic stop on what he thought was an impaired driver. Turns out it was a 5-year-old child, troopers said in a news release.
UHP said he told troopers he left home after an argument with his mom, who told him she would not buy him a Lamborghini. He decided he’d take the family car and go to California to buy one himself. Troopers said he might have been short on the purchase amount, as he only had $3 dollars in his wallet.
Troopers said the 5-year-old somehow made his way up onto the freeway in his parents’ car. Officials said he made it from 17th and Lincoln in Ogden down to the 25th St off-ramp SB I-15.
