It wasn't exactly a joy ride.
A 7-year-old Michigan boy intent on seeing his father in a neighboring town jumped into his stepfather's Pontiac Sunfire Monday morning while his mother slept and drove about 20 miles before authorities were able to pull him over, according to a report in the Detroit Free Press.
Supposedly the youngster, barefoot and in his pajamas, could barely see over the steering wheel and had to stand on the floorboard to reach the gas pedal.
Huron County Sheriff's Deputy Randy Britt's dashboard camera shows the boy veering off the roadway several times during the harrowing trip before the car coasts to a stop.
Authorities have many questions in need of answers.
