Six-year-old boys took pick-up truck for a joyride

Police say two 6-year-old boys took a joyride in a pick-up truck through a central Kansas town, damaging five other vehicles and two mailboxes along the way.

Newton police Sgt. Josh Millspaugh says the boys’ three-block journey ended at about 4:30pm on Tuesday when they rammed another truck.

One of the boys was taken to a Wichita hospital with minor lacerations. The other was released to a parent. Millspaugh said it was “surprising” to see such young occupants when he responded to the scene.

He said the boys didn’t say where they were going, but had collided with cars and a full-sized van, and occasionally drove through yards. Parents were getting ready to leave when the children took the truck and started it and took off. The truck they drove belonged to a parent.
