Nine and Four Year Old Try To Drive Car To Grandmother's
Washington County Sheriff's officials say a 9-year-old and a 4-year-old took a car from a boat dealership parking lot on State Highway 33 in West Bend Saturday evening. The Sheriff's Office got 911 calls just before 5:30 p.m. Several callers followed the car as the children drove West on Highway 33 then South on State Highway 144. Witnesses were able to get the car stopped, approach the car, turn it off and remove the keys. When officers arrived they found out the 9-year-old had been driving and the 4-year-old was a passenger. The two said they wondered away from their home in West Bend and were trying to get to their grandmother's house on State Highway 144. They had driven four miles. No one was hurt and there was no property damage. No charges are being referred.
