When Utah Highway Patrol Trooper Rick Morgan pulled over a swerving vehicle near Ogden Monday afternoon, he expected to find an impaired driver at the wheel — not a 5-year-old boy on his way to buy a Lamborghini.
Morgan said the boy, Adrian, didn’t initially respond to lights but pulled over immediately as soon as he hit the siren. He was heading southbound on Interstate 15, heading to California, where his sister lives.
“I approached the vehicle and I was expecting to find somebody who needed an ambulance or paramedics,” Morgan said, adding that when the window came down who he actually found was “a very underaged driver who was behind the wheel.”
“Where did you come from? How did you get this car?” a baffled Morgan is heard saying to Adrian in dashcam video of the incident. . .
KUTV-TV reported that Adrian grabbed the keys to the family’s Dodge Journey and drove the care two miles through downtown Ogden and then onto Interstate 15 while his sister Sidney Estrada took a nap. She told the outlet that she was watching her little brother while their parents were at work.
His story is that he left home after an argument with Mom, in which she told him she would not buy him a Lamborghini. He decided he'd take the car and go to California to buy one himself. He might have been short on the purchase amount, as he only had $3 dollars in his wallet.
