OGDEN, Utah (AP/CNN) — A Utah Highway Patrol trooper got a pint-sized surprise when he pulled over a 5-year-old driver who was swerving so badly he thought the driver needed medical attention.

Authorities spotted the vehicle going about 30 mph on the freeway.

Trooper Rick Morgan said the boy did not respond to his lights but pulled over when he hit his siren on Interstate 15 on Monday. But when the window came down Morgan said it was pretty clear that it was “a very underaged driver.”

When asked, Morgan said the boy told him he was going to his sister’s house — in California.

The child had apparently gotten into a fight with his mom when she said she wouldn't buy him a Lamborghini.

With $3 in his pocket, the boy took the keys and drove off.

His parents were contacted and they came and took custody of their son and the vehicle.
