From the Atlanta Journal-Constitution

The boy, whose name wasn’t released, missed the bus, took the keys to his family’s 2005 Ford Taurus and drove nearly six miles toward school while his mother was asleep, police said.

He made at least two 90-degree turns, passed several cars and ran off the rural two-lane road several times before hitting an embankment and utility pole about a mile and a half from school.

The boy told police he learned to drive playing Grand Theft Auto and Monster Truck Jam video games.

“He was very intent on getting to school,” said Northumberland County Sheriff Chuck Wilkins. “When he got out of the car, he started walking to school. He did not want to miss breakfast and PE.”

His parents, Jacqulyn Deana Waltman, 26, and David Eugene Dodson, 40, are each charged with child endangerment, Wilkins said. Waltman is being held without bond. Dodson was released on a $5,000 bond.

See, the one and only one way you know this kid’s parents are awful, is because he had to go to school to get some breakfast.  Good mommies always pour a bowl of cereal for their childrens before school.

It sounds like he drove just like I want to drive after playing GTA. Passing people, running off the road, whipping crazy turns…I’m suprised that the utility pole didn’t just break off and fly away upon impact. BTW, Sweet Pic!
