The Utah Highway Patrol said the child took his parents' car after getting mad when his mom said she would not buy him a Lamborghini.
While his parents were at work, he slipped away from his sibling, grabbed the car keys and set out for California to buy one for himself.
He only had $3 in his pocket.
The boy made it two miles from his home before getting pulled over.
"He was upset and on the verge of tears, and it was short one-word answers that he gave," Utah Highway Patrol Trooper Rick Morgan said. "His parents said that he had not driven before, this was the first time that he did anything like this."
Fortunately the boy was not injured.
One of our Troopers in Weber Co. initiated a traffic stop on what he thought was an impaired driver. Turns out it was this young man, age 5, somehow made his way up onto the freeway in his parents' car. Made it from 17th and Lincoln in Ogden down to the 25th St off-ramp SB I-15. pic.twitter.com/3aF1g22jRB— Utah Highway Patrol (@UTHighwayPatrol) May 4, 2020
