A boy in Germany, managed to steal a bus and drive around with unsuspecting people.
Police were called after the boy was seen driving the public bus for about 2 and a half miles.
The boy also stopped at the regular bus stops and he picked up passengers. Surprisingly, some people entered the bus without questioning the baby-faced driver.
Police pulled over the young driver, who confirmed that he was only 11 years old. The boy told police that he found the keys to the bus a few days before he decided to take it for a joyride.
Drivers and pedestrians who saw the young bus driver, notified police. When police stopped the bus and removed the 11-year-old boy from the driver’s seat, there were 3 passengers on board.
The passengers said that they were surprised by the young age of the driver, but that did not prevent them from entering the bus.
One person defended these passengers by saying: “As someone who hates waiting for the bus, I would also have been tempted to enter.
“Also, my brain would have made up a perfect explanation, maybe the driver had some form of dwarfism. I mean what is more likely, a bus driver with dwarfism or a kid stealing a public bus and driving the standard route.”
