Six-year-old claims video games taught him to drive
But not very well.
Most kids wouldn't make much of a fuss if they missed a day of school, but a six-year-old
How did he make it that far?
And by the sound of it, he drives like most of us play: wildly out of control. During his journey, the boy made "at least two 90-degree turns, passed several cars and ran off the rural two-lane road several times before hitting an embankment and utility pole about a mile and a half from school."
After being cleared of serious injury, he was taken to school by authorities. If that seems cruel, don't tell the scholarly youngster.
"He was very intent on getting to school," said Northumberland County Sheriff Chuck Wilkins. "When he got out of the [crashed] car, he started walking to school. He did not want to miss breakfast and PE."
The boy's parents have each been charged with child endangerment, though it's unclear if that's for facilitating their kid's dangerous joyride or letting a six-year-old play the Mature-rated Grand Theft Auto in the first place.
Tidakku sangka bahaya juga bermain permainan video. Tapi bukan bagi aku. Haha!
Kepada ibu bapa semua, kalau nak bagi anak main video games, bagi la yang tak ganazz. Bahaya akibatnya nanti. Kepada mereka yang boleh berfikir secara logik lak, kalau nak main game tu, jangan sampai terpengaruh dan terlalu asyik dengan permainan tersebut. Papepon, video games memang best! ^^
