8-year-old steals parents' car twice in one week

A young driving fan from Germany ended up crashing after repeatedly taking his parents' car out on a joyride.
The boy, who lives in Soest, first took the Volkswagen Golf for a spin in the early hours of Wednesday morning and was later spotted driving at 87mph along a motorway.

He was eventually apprehended after stopping at the side of the road with his hazard lights on.

Even a 'stern talking-to' from his mother didn't seem to have dissuaded his driving obsession however as a mere two days later he did exactly the same thing again.

This time though he wasn't quite so fortunate and ended up crashing the car after driving 31 miles to the nearby city of Dortmund at speeds of up to 110mph.

Luckily nobody was injured, however the car was badly damaged.

The boy, who has a lot of experience driving go-karts, will now receive psychological counselling.

How he was able to do that without a wreck is baffling.

Good grief, he's done it again.

Third time would be a charm.

The mother is purely at fault and a complete idiot!! Hide the blooming keys!!! And then he does it again!!  The mother is the one who needs to go for a psychological counselling along with her son. Thankfully no one was hurt, but if anyone had been, it would be the mothers fault.  Something tells me he will be out on the public  roads again on his own before he has a licence.

Yup! When I didn't want the middle knucklehead to drive anything, including his dirt bike. He couldn't drive anything.

He is regularly driving kart and as per police report he drove motor car on a closed/private terrain already.

And just like with my son's dirt bike, those bloody cart wheels would be stashed at a friend's house.

Unbelievable. If it happens again they should take his parents cars away.

Wow, some people are born criminals I think, won't be long until he starts taking drugs, steals cars, and joins a gang I'm afraid :-( .
