9-Year-Old Behind the Wheel in Philadelphia Car Crash

The scene of a Philadelphia car accident on October 2, 2011 was unlike anything most officers have ever experienced. Not because of the damage at the scene, but because of the driver behind the wheel of the vehicle.

When officers arrived upon the scene of the accident at Roosevelt Boulevard near Rhawn Street, they discovered that the driver of the vehicle was none other than a 9-year-old boy.

The accident occurred at approximately 9:30 a.m. after the boy took his parents’ 1999 Chevy Malibu for a drive. As the car was traveling northbound on Roosevelt Boulevard, the young boy lost control. The vehicle then flipped and crashed into a tree.

The boy was taken to Saint Christopher’s Hospital for treatment of his injuries. He was listed to be in critical condition.

Police have not released the identity of the boy or his parents. They also have not yet released how far the vehicle was driven or even how the boy was able to gain access to the vehicle.
Luckily, no one else was injured in the accident.

The Bucks County injury lawyers at Cordisco & Saile wish a full recovery to this young boy.
