(Scroll down for video) A teenage boy knew he had to act quickly when he saw a 9-year-old boy speeding down a highway.
The teenager of West Bend, Wisconsin, is being called a hero after he managed to forcefully pull over the stolen car driven by the 9 year old, along with his 4-year-old brother.
The two young boys had stolen the car from a parking lot while riding their bikes. The kids allegedly told police that they were on their way to visit their grandmother when they spotted a car with the keys in the ignition.
They threw their bikes in the back seat of the Pontiac Grand Prix, and they drove off. 18-year-old Kaiden Duck, spotted the car and thought it was a drunk driver.
“The speed limit was 35 miles per hour, and they were doing at least 70 miles per hour,” Duck said.
Duck then realized that a young boy was driving with a young passenger. “I had to get around them at 85 miles per hour,” Duck added.
With the help of his friend, who was driving in another vehicle, they were able to get the boys to stop, before the State Police and the Washington County Sheriff’s Officers arrived at the scene.
“He was using his blinkers, he was using gas and brakes. I was shocked!” Duck’s friend Andy Gonring said.
The children were returned to their family and the car was returned to its owner. No charges are being filed against the young car thieves, who traveled more than five miles during the joyride.
