A 10-year-old Norwegian boy stole his parents’ car, put his baby sister inside it and drove away, but that’s not the craziest part of this story.
After he lost control of the car, ending up in a snowy ditch, he told the snowplow driver who found him that he was a dwarf who had forgotten his driver’s license.
The incident happened Wednesday in Dokka, which is outside of Oslo. Reuters reported that the boy said he was heading to his grandparents house that was about 37 miles away. He only drove about six miles from his home before landing in the ditch.
“The parents woke up and discovered that the children were missing and that someone had taken off with their car. They were pretty upset, as you can imagine,” Baard Christiansen, a spokesman for the Vest Oppland Police, said, according to Reuters. “The boy told the snowplow driver that he was a dwarf and that he had forgotten his driver’s license at home.”
“He woke up at night, his sister was also awake and he decided to take her for a ride,” Lyshaugen said.
Fortunately, no one was injured and no charges are being filed.
“We have talked to them, and I’m pretty sure they’re going to pay very close attention both to their children and to their car keys in the future,” Christiansen said.
