The boy’s family were asleep at home and were unaware their son had taken the Ford Taurus station wagon out in Michigan in the US.

When stopped by police at about 7.30am on Saturday morning, he informed them that he was planning to get the car repaired and then stop off for Chinese food.


Fortunately there were relatively few vehicles on the road at the time and the child was stopped by motorists who had dialled 911 to report erratic driving.

Having hit a street sign near his house and cracking the bumper, the boy initially blamed the damage on his father.
