Boy, 3, driving along a busy highway... in his toy Mustang GT!

  1. Cops Pull Over Boy, 3, Driving Along Highway in Toy Mustang GT

    Friday, October 12, 2007



    OMRO, Wis. — The candy-apple red Mustang GT is just a toy, but that didn't stop 3-year-old Jordan Will from taking his battery-operated wheels for a brief ride along a busy stretch of highway.

    Drivers stopped and neighbors chased down the car until an officer could pull over Jordan and his 2-year-old passenger on Sunday.
    "Nothing bad happened, so it's kind of cute now when you look at it," said his father, Doug Will. "But at the time, it wasn't cute at all. It was scary. I was really upset."
    The Mustang is decked out with all the extras: a rear spoiler, a premium sound system and chrome wheels.
    The boys drove the tricked-out ride through their Omro neighborhood and pulled up to a busy intersection.
    "He even obeyed the signs, so that was good. He stopped at the red light and got on the cross walk," said neighbor Jaci Bauer.
    Another neighbor, Jason Bauer, panicked when he saw the boys cross over a highway, onto a sidewalk and over a bridge. He gave chase for a few blocks until an officer pulled the boys over.
    "By the time we stopped them, they probably made it five or six blocks from home before anyone even noticed they had been wandering around town," Jason Bauer said.



    Doug Will had been searching for the boys when he got the call to come get the car.
    "He just said, 'We went for a ride, daddy,"' Will said.
    All Jordan can do now is sit in the little car. His father has taken away the keys and removed the battery.
    Officers said Jordan's dad won't be cited.
    Omro is in east-central Wisconsin, about 10 miles west of Oshkosh.

  2. :s i'm very glad to read that the boys are ok and no harm was done.
     
  3. Me too.

    Come to think of it, I'm tryin' to picture him drivin' along the highway with his lil car. The toy car is not bad at all, it has a rear spoiler, a premium sound system and chrome wheels. It's quite a toy car!

    "He even obeyed the signs, so that was good. He stopped at the red light and got on the cross walk," said neighbor Jaci Bauer. ---> this makes me smile! I think it's real cute!

    But at the end, there's nothing cute about it. It is really dangerous, and I am just glad that everyone's ok.
     
  4. hahah how cute...good thing nothing happened! i can picture the little boy just sitting in his car with a frown on his face since he cant drive it anymore..
     
  5. i wish there was a picture of the car!
    what a cute story! thank god they're okay though!
     
  6. OMG! Thank God they were not hurt or killed! Glad the dad has been responsible now & taken away the keys & battery!
     
  7. that is so scary, the parents should have watched them better though!
     
  8. I know! I wanna see it too. I think it's not an ordinary toy car from the description of it. Must have cost serious $$..
     
  9. What a smart boy. I'm very impressed that he obeyed signs. At least he's a considerate driver.
     
  10. Good driver. We need more of those, except legally. :] Glad he was safe!
     
  11. Cute, but something really bad could of happened! The parents should keep a closer eye on their kid.
     
  12. All the little girls were probably checking him out. I so would have. I mean, all the guys I know drive regular Hondas.
     
  13. I actually don't think that is cute at all!!!! His dad thinks it is funny?? This boy is 3 and had a 2 yr old with him. Why is the dad not watching them?? That is DANGEROUS
