German Boy Sneaks Off In Parent's Car


Good morning. I'm David Greene. Do you remember the first time you drove a car? Maybe it was in the back of a parking lot or at your local driving school. Well, an 8-year-old boy in Germany decided to try and get an early start. He snuck into his parents' car one night and just drove off.
