"There was no evidence of any kind of neglect or inappropriate action on the part of the parents here. "
A Utah prosecutor decided that the parents of the 5-year-old boy, who drove an SUV on a freeway to “buy” a Lamborghini” in California, will not face any charges. In a statement, it’s been said that there is no proof of “neglect” or even “inappropriate action” committed by the parents.
The prosecutor also confirmed that the 5-year-old boy, whose name has been withheld, will not face any legal consequences.
“There was no evidence of any kind of neglect or inappropriate action on the part of the parents here. The boy himself will not face any legal repercussions, either,” Weber County district attorney Christopher Allred said.
The incident went viral online when the Utah Highway Patrol posted the dash camera footage on YouTube. Trooper Rick Morgan spotted the SUV vehicle swerving on Interstate 15 at 30 mph and he initially suspected it was an “impaired driver”.
The young boy managed to drive about two to three miles from his home before he was asked to pull over in the southbound lane of Interstate 15 in Ogden which is about 38 miles north of Salt Lake City.
When he was asked to pull over, the 5-year-old boy said he was heading to California to buy a Lamborghini. The child also explained that he snuck out and drove his parents’ vehicle after he had an argument with his mother who told him that she will not purchase him the luxury car.
The boy only had $3 in his pocket. A Lamborghini has a price tag of around $200,000 and above.
“It looked like he just snuck out from underneath his 16-year-old sister’s eyes and made a break. I have no idea how the kid got as far as he did, but he made it onto the ramp and actually made it on the freeway — headed in the right direction, I might add, to California,” Allred said in a New York Times news report.
Allred said his parents were at work when the incident happened and had no idea that their son had taken the keys and went to his dangerous adventure.
The district lawyer, however, said he was not sure how the 5-year-old learned how to drive.
The boy’s 16-year-old sister, Sidney Flores had taken a nap at about 11 a.m. while her mother and stepfather were at work. During her rest, her little brother decided to go for a ride and chase his Lamborghini dream.
Flores immediately called her mom after learning about his little brother’s disappearance. They initially thought the child has been kidnapped.
