What sort of lie would a child say when he/she is caught driving on the road? In this edition of Truth is Stranger than Fiction, a ten year old child from Norway stole his parents car, crashed it into a snowy ditch, and told people that he is a dwarf who has forgotten his driver’s license.

While his parents were asleep, the 10-year-old boy took his 18-month-old sister in their family’s car and drove off to their grandparent’s house, which is 61 km away. He managed to travel for approximately 10 km before the car went off-road and landed into a ditch.

Moments later the snowplow driver arrived at the scene and called the cops for help.

“The boy told the snowplow driver that he was a dwarf and that he had forgotten his driver’s license at home.” said Baard Christiansen, a spokesman for the Vest Oppland police district.

“The parents woke up and discovered that the children were missing and that someone had taken off with their car. They were pretty upset, as you can imagine,” he added.

The children were fortunately unharmed, the car is undamaged, and the police has closed the case which pretty much means this story has a happy ending, this kid is going to get grounded till after puberty. Maybe the folks should keep their car keys in a safer place from now on.
