A six-year-old rode on the roof of his parents' minivan for three miles down the Parks Highway without the parents noticing before he tumbled off and onlookers plucked him off the highway and called 911, the Alaska State Troopers said Sunday.
The boy escaped with only minor cuts and bruises.
The child told troopers he was riding on his parents' car as it left their home near Mile 52 of the Parks Highway, according to an online trooper dispatch.
"We think the kid was riding on the roof where there are bars," said AST spokeswoman Beth Ipsen. "He has apparently done it before."
The stupid is strong with parents who allowed it to happen in the first place. The story goes on to state that no one was charged "with a crime or traffic violation."
Makes me wonder exactly who these people are.
