When Utah Highway Patrol Trooper Rick Morgan spotted a swerving Dodge Journey traveling on I-15 near Ogden and effected a traffic stop. He expected to find a drunk driver or one in medical distress.
What he actually found was a five-year-old child who had borrowed the family vehicle and told the trooper he was heading to California to buy a Lamborghini supercar.
One of our Troopers in Weber Co. initiated a traffic stop on what he thought was an impaired driver. Turns out it was this young man, age 5, somehow made his way up onto the freeway in his parents' car. Made it from 17th and Lincoln in Ogden down to the 25th St off-ramp SB I-15. pic.twitter.com/3aF1g22jRB— Utah Highway Patrol (@UTHighwayPatrol) May 4, 2020
The boy was reunited with his family.
Family members told KUTV that 5-year-old Adrian has never driven a car before and they don’t know how he managed to get the keys to the car, much less drive across Ogden, and get on the interstate.
