8-yr-old crashes teacher's car
Berlin - An eight-year-old German
schoolboy who wanted to complain to his mother about being sent
out of class took his teacher's car and crashed it, police said.
The boy, banished from class for disrupting a lesson,
pinched the 40-year-old teacher's car key when she was not
looking and managed to start up her compact car, accelerating
and putting the vehicle into first gear.
"The little fellow drove for about 25m before
crashing into a Volvo, also parked in the car park outside the
school," a police spokesperson in the eastern German city of
Zwickau said on Thursday.
The boy later told police he had wanted to drive home to his
mother to complain about the teacher sending him out of class.
Police estimated he caused €8 000 of damage.
