3-Year-Old Crashes Jeep, Runs Home To Watch Cartoons
This 3-year-old may not have all his priorities completely in order, but he knows what’s important: cartoons. The Oregon toddler jacked his aunt’s Jeep last Tuesday (July 22) and crashed it, only to rush home immediately and watch a little television.
He has a schedule to keep.
The boy’s aunt told police that the toddler left the house while she was in the bathroom and went out to the car. He got inside and accidentally knocked the car in neutral causing it to roll and eventually collide into another house. A witness called 911 and saw the young boy leaving from the scene — wearing only a diaper.
He was later found back at the house, “lying on the couch watching cartoons as if nothing had ever happened.” It’s clear that nothing fazes this little guy.
A cop questioned the boy, who said that his parents weren’t home (obviously). The 22-year-old woman babysitting him was cited for failing to supervise the child. “We want to encourage parents to remember that children are very crafty in finding ways to get in trouble and for parents to be very vigilant,” said Officer Kevin Taggart.
The parents have entered into a civil arrangement with the homeowner whose property was damaged.
