In a terrible incident on Monday, a 7-year-old child in Canada secretly drove his father’s car for a drive and crashed his father’s car.
According to Canada Global News, Merii Al dourzi, a resident of Edmonton, was sleeping when his son swiped the car key. According to reports, the boy drove their silver minivan along their street. In the process, he ran into a car and a tree and then overturned to a playground in a nearby park.
When the authorities arrived at the scene, just after noon, they found that the car was empty. At the same time, the child has walked home to tell his parents what happened. According to reports, as a precautionary measure, he was taken to the hospital but suffered only some bruises.
Added CCTV news The boy only drove “about 10 houses” before the crash. In addition, the playground where he landed is currently under construction and there are no other people or children.
Neighbor Bob Braybrook told CTV News: “They are rebuilding the park. If it is completely rebuilt, there may be children there.”
“Very lucky,” he added. “Injury to a child really makes me sad.”
According to the media report, neighbor Ray Stahr saw the accident on his scooter. “My heart sank, I ran here,” he said. “It surprised me, it might happen.”
Starr himself is a father, and he said that the dire circumstances prompted him to consider the risks posed by increasingly accessible and easy-to-use vehicles. “This is terrible. It makes me want to make sure I can educate my children,” he said. “My car is a one-button start-you don’t even need to plug the key into the ignition switch,” he added, noting that cars with push-button ignition are becoming more and more popular, making it easier for kids drive.
Starr told the news media that when he got home every day, he just put the “keys on the kitchen counter, never thought about it”-let them be within the reach of his children.
This incident is far from isolated and shows that children need to learn about vehicle safety from an early age.
Earlier this month, two sisters, nine and four years old, After trying to drive from their home in Utah to California, their parents’ car crashed. According to officials, the sisters drove because they wanted to “swim in the sea”-but they only walked about ten miles before hitting a semi-truck. No one was injured in the incident.
“It doesn’t seem like a question of negligence, it seems to be something that can happen to anyone. We have some curious kids who are excited about swimming with dolphins in California and figured out how to drive a car,” Said a detective in charge of the case. According to reports, the sisters managed to grab the keys while their parents were sleeping, and the keys were stored in “a place where children usually cannot get it.”
