That’s strange. Usually the PC press makes a point of telling us whether alcohol was a factor in the accident.

This little boy was on a serious mission to get to Applebees? LOL! Was he going to put his booster chair on the bar stool and have a beer and appetizers at happy hour?

Also if it was an suv. They're evil and often the cause of problems.

"I have five children of my own, so I know you cannot watch them every minute they're awake,"

True, but you can sure hide the car keys.
I guess it could have been worse.

One thing about the so-called "PC" press. They allow fools into their forums.

Surely, you jest. It has nothing to do with cars.

You have to admit a child has no limits in what they can or think they can accomplish.
They, unlike Adults, are willing to try any new feat. With no fear of not being able to succeed at
whatever goal they had in mind. maybe we should be more like children. We expect them to act like adults. Mixed up world, isn't it?
I'm just glad he wasn't injured. Putting the keys in a safe place would be a novel idea.

'Twas a joke, and a long term observation of press tendencies. My favorite: "The Suv slammed against the pole sideways, trapping the driver in the vehicle." Like the driver had nothing to do with the accident, but the suv was sentient and had evil intentions.
BTW: Not claiming I'm not a fool:^)

Just last night was a segment of Really Reckless Drivers in which a 5-year-old little boy last year HAD gotten hold of mommy's SUV and eased on down the road some before he was pulled over - without crashing into anything/body! Wasn't mentioned if he'd had a craving for that vomitable Chuck E. Cheese, but that he managed to pilot a larger vehicle than his contemporary [and for greater distance] without mishap is, as Spock said, "extremely interesting." Wonder what that migth portend about their future success in life? Given the current state of American political affairs, I volunteer the Applebee's kid might one day ascend to the presidency!

And I suppose you drive a Segway to Home Depot to pick up lumber?
