[h=1]Boy, 10, steals parents' car to visit grandparents 68 miles away... then tells police he is a dwarf who has forgotten his licence[/h]
  • Boy, 10, put his 18-month old sister in car and drove to visit grandparents
  • Made it 10kms before veering off the snowy Norwegian road
  • Told police he was a dwarf who forgot his driver's licence
  • The children were uninjured and the car was undamaged

A ten-year-old Norwegian boy who drove his parents’ car into a snowy ditch offered an inventive excuse to police: he was a dwarf who had forgotten his driver’s license.
The boy – who lives near Dokka, a town 110kms (68 miles) north of Oslo – put his 18-month old sister into the car sometime before 6am, while his parents were still sleeping and set off to visit his grandparents in Valdres, about 60 kilometres away.
He drove more than 10 kilometres before veering off the road, where he was found by a snowplow driver who alerted police.

‘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,’ said Baard Christiansen, a spokesman for the Vest Oppland police district.

Some more juicy details for you all.. ;) Kid told the Police he wanted to take a break at a reststop and do some drifting in the snow - when he couldn't make the turn, the journey ended in the ditch.
Another outlet reports the father only let the kid sit in his lap and hold the wheel 'once'.
