Brothers, 6 and 3, take parents’ automotive for joyride in Malaysia

A six 12 months previous boy in Malaysia put his three year previous brother in the passenger seat of his parent’s car and took it for a 2.5 kilometre joyride earlier than crashing right into a lamppost late Tuesday night time.
The motive? Instantly wished to buy a toy automotive.
After the boys’ father fell asleep, they waited for his or her mom to go to the bathroom to sneak out of their home – on Malaysia’s Langkawi Island close to the border of Thailand – and “borrow” the Toyota Vios at around 11pm.
The six year previous boy managed to drive 2.5 kilometres away from residence earlier than dropping control, stated Langkawi Police Chief Shariman Ashari…
“The driver was a minor aged six, who was driving a passenger – his brother, aged three. The crash occurred when the automotive, travelling from Ulu Meleka in the path of Kampung Nyior Chabang, misplaced management and crashed into a lamppost close to Kampung Titi Chanwang.”
The elder boy sustained a cut on his face within the crash whereas his younger brother luckily came out unscathed. The car bonnet was considerably damaged.
Other drivers on the highway stated that they saw the automotive driving recklessly and chased it as a result of they assumed the driver was drunk. It seems he was simply six.
In a video posted on Facebook, the six year previous may be heard telling passersby, “Mother is at home and we’re going buying.” “We wish to purchase a black automotive,” his younger brother adds.
According to the witness who took the video, the six yr old controlled the steering wheel and the three 12 months previous controlled the throttle pedal.
He pointed out that when comparable “joyride” incidents have occurred in Malaysia prior to now, the parents/guardians of the infant drivers have been charged under Section 39(5) of the Road Transport of 1987…
