BERLIN – An eight-year-old German schoolboy who wanted to complain to his mother about being sent out of class took his teacher’s car and crashed it, police said.

“The little fellow drove for about 25 m (yards) before crashing into a Volvo, also parked in the car park outside the school,” a police spokesman in the eastern German city of Zwickau said on Thursday. (H/T – )
