Miss the School Bus? Well then just drive yourself!

Well at least that is what this 6yr old 1st grader thought he would do.  He had to make a decision because his mother was still sleeping.

Boy, 6, Misses Bus, Takes Mom’s Car Instead

10-Mile Trip to Va. School Ends With Crash but Without Injury

By Tom Jackman Washington Post Staff Writer

The word “miracle” can be overused. But when a 6-year-old boy drives a Ford Taurus for more than 10 miles, weaving in and out of oncoming traffic, slams into a utility pole and no one gets hurt, well, maybe miracle is appropriate.

That’s what happened on Virginia’s Northern Neck on Monday morning, when the first-grader missed his school bus and decided to drive his mom’s car to elementary school so he wouldn’t miss breakfast and PE, authorities said yesterday.

“It’s a miracle that somebody didn’t get killed,” said Northumberland County Sheriff Chuck Wilkins of the boy’s drive along Northumberland Highway. “We’re a rural area, but if we do have a rush hour, that’s it.”

The boy’s parents were arrested and charged with felony child endangerment. Wilkins said the father, David E. Dodson, 40, was under a court order not to leave the 6-year-old and his 4-year-old brother alone with their mother, Jacqulyn D. Waltman, 26, at their home in the town of Wicomico Church. But Dodson left for work at 6:30 a.m., and Waltman was still asleep when the 6-year-old missed the bus and then drove off at 7:40 a.m. for Northumberland Elementary School, Wilkins said.

Sgt. Thomas A. Cunningham Jr. of the Virginia State Police said the boy is not particularly tall for his age and was “possibly standing” while driving the Taurus. Wilkins said the child had an idea about how to start, propel and steer the car from playing video games.
