In the early morning hours, a ten year old boy bundled up his baby sister of 18 months, snuck out of the house and into his parents’ car, and took off for grandma’s. He got partway there before wrecking the car into a snowy ditch.
The boy, whose family lives in Dokka, Norway, wanted to see his grandparents in Valdres, about 60 kilometers from Dokka. Everything was going well until about 10 kilometers into the trip, when the car lost traction and slid into a ditch full of snow.
A snowplow driver stopped to see if everyone was OK and called police. He asked the boy what happened. The response?
“I am a dwarf and this is my daughter. I left my driver‘s license at home, though.”
No one was harmed and police are not pressing any charges. The car was pulled from the ditch and taken home. We can assume that the boy, however, will not get dessert for a while and his parents are likely keeping closer tabs on those car keys.
