Disaster averted when five-year-old takes the wheel
Five-year-old Travis Kirk knew just what to do when his aunt's car slipped out of gear and began rolling away while he was strapped in the back seat.
He unstrapped himself, jumped in the front seat, grabbed the wheel and steered the errant auto around a boat on a trailer, and then hit the brakes, stopping the car just before it would have rolled down a steep embankment.
Police say Travis successfully steered the car around a boat and trailer parked nearby.

I agree anngel. My first thought when reading this was how did the car go out of gear on it' s own? Most likely the boy was a little too smart.
