4-year old causes car crash

A 4-year old boy caused a serious car accident in Tranås on Monday. The boy was in his father's car in a car park. His father left the car for a few moments; as he returned, the little boy jumped into the driver's seat, and turned the ignition.

It appears the car was in gear while parked and when the engine started the car jumped forward, according to DN. A man who was standing in front of the car by a shop window was hit and thrown through the window. The window shattered completely and the man’s legs were trapped under the car.

He had to be taken to hospital in Eksjö for an emergency operation. At first it was believed that the man had his legs crushed by the car, but it was reported by the hospital that he only had minor injuries.
