But he still turned off the carriageway, weaved along country lanes, smashed into two parked vehicles and clipped a passing motorist before halting when he hit a wall.

Driven quite well, huh?

How could they tell by the tiny eyes above the dash if it was a 5-year old....or a 95-year old? Driving ability's about the same too.

"The lad could only trundle along at 10mph in the powerful 2.6-litre automatic car.

But he still turned off the carriageway, weaved along country lanes, smashed into two parked vehicles and clipped a passing motorist before halting when he hit a wall. A driver following Thomas pulled out the sobbing child unhurt.

One family pal said: "He's a clever boy. He's seen his mum drive loads of times and must have tried to copy her.""


Sounds like he copied her to a T, including the sobbing.


BTW, is it too much to ask you people in the passing lane to either pass other cars, or pull into the next lane to the right? Thanks.

It's rare to see someone so young with that much drive.

You ever seen a geezer drive that fast?

Good point.

Er, how many 5 year old drivers has the witness seen to base his judgment on this particular 5 year old to think he drove 'quite well'?

Judging by the article, he drove like a 5 year old would. Shiat.

Unfortunately, he lives in a country where drive is little rewarded.

Something like this happened to me once. A little boy shouted, "Look out! A woman is driving!" and sure enough, just over the mini-vans dash board I could see a Starbucks coffee cup and a compact. I got out of the way and we all survived.

Guilty. But I can't tell you how many times I've nearly been run off the road by some jerk-off with short-man syndrome driving his Hummer, giving himself one.

This all could of been avoided had his mother made him a delicious sammie instead of being asleep at the time.

All the more reason to drive a manual.

"It's a bizarre case and we're not taking action against anyone."

Thomas's parents declined to comment.


That's possibly because they're hoping nobody thinks to ask wtf they were and why they weren't around to stop him from taking the car in the first place.

Mmm, the driving chimp story is nuttier, but it's also from the 1960s.

Chimp drives Sports car. (pops)

Kid's lucky he didn't get hurt, but damn he'll have the best story to tell on the playground for quite some time.

"But for a five-year-old he had actually driven quite well"

I guess that rules out his being Asian
