(Scroll down for video) Police launched an investigation after a video appeared on the Internet, showing a young boy driving a car on a highway, according to police in Mexico.
The incident unfolded on Thursday, on a three-lane highway in Monterrey.
The video shows the 12-year-old boy sitting in the driver’s seat, and extended his head over the steering wheel to look out the windshield.
He seemed very comfortable driving the car at speeds of up to 75 miles per hour despite the fact that it was raining and the road was wet.
The video shows the boy’s father playing with a cellphone in the front passenger seat of the Mazda CX-5. The video was recorded by another driver who passed by the Mazda on the highway.
The witness passed the boy’s car on the left side and was able to record the video, which clearly shows the young child at the wheel.
So far, no arrests have been made.
