13yo takes bus on joy-ride in China - February 25th 2009, 01:23 AM

http://www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2...23/2499417.htm


A 13-year-old Beijing boy commandeered a city bus when its driver stopped for a bathroom break, going on a wild joy-ride that left a trail of smashed cars and other damage, China's state media said.

The incident on Sunday morning (local time) began when a bus driver returned from the bathroom at a transport terminal in eastern Beijing to find his bus gone, Xinhua news agency said.

The vehicle had been driven off by the 13-year-old, who zigzagged through traffic, crashing into two cars on the road and about 10 parked vehicles and knocking down two electricity poles, it said.

No one was injured in the incident.

"It was like watching a blockbuster movie when I saw the bus crashing into cars like a bulldozer," Xinhua quoted a man surnamed Liu as saying.

"I threw my canteen and ran for my life."

One of the parked cars was struck so hard that it was thrown through the front entrance of a local health clinic, shattering the building's glass door, Xinhua said.

Passersby eventually kicked the bus door open and seized the boy.

"He was thin... and trembling, but did not say a word," said a man surnamed Chen, who helped stop the bus.

The boy told police his surname was Chao and he was from the nearby city of Tianjin, the Beijing News said. Authorities were still trying to locate the boy's parents on Monday, Xinhua reported.

I wonder what the kid was thinking. He's lucky no one was hurt.

If someone had been hurt I'd find this far less humorous. The damaged property scales down the humor, too, though. Seriously. 13 = old enough to know better.

Oh wow. I'm glad nobody was hurt. Why would a 13 year old do that? They must know better.

Wait.. if the boy for whatever reason took the bus on a joy-ride, how did he get it to start, unless the bus driver left the bus running? Usually, for our buses the drivers do indeed leave the engines running but they typically stand outside the bus or if they use the washroom or get a snack/drink, other bus drivers chat outside the buses. Front door is closed, which would make it a bit hard to stop them from the outside but they should take the keys out. Or maybe they have some other security feature, I'm not sure.

That kind of worries me. I remember being younger and thinking about taking my parents car and running away with it but my mind always went to how much trouble i'd actually get in to.
