A 16-year old was driving a big rig down the 210 Freeway in Lake View Terrace, California.Â Why was an unlicensed 16-year old driving a big rig?Â The boyâ€™s father, the man who should have been operating the truck, wanted to take a nap. Simple explanation, that makes sense, right?
The names of these two brilliant people have not been released.Â The un-named father let his un-named son drive a semi-truck without a license, and guess what?Â The boy fell asleep while at the wheel.Â The truck crashed close to a mobile home park around 3:30 am local time.Â The truck was full of whipped cream and cream cheese products.
According to the LA Times, there were no injuries, lucky for that duo.Â Police did have a problem finding the two. Dad and son knew they were in deep trouble at that point so they did what came natural; they hid in the bushes so they wouldnâ€™t get caught.Â Once located, the boy did admit he was driving the big-rig.Â Two lanes of the highway are closed and probably wonâ€™t reopen until late afternoon.
The boy may face charges for driving without a license.Â Perhaps dad and son should both be fined, the charge, stupidity.
