The Utah Highway Patrol shared the picture of the unusual incident on their official Twitter account. In the picture where the boy's face has been hidden, he's seen on the driving seat talking to the police officer.

It wasn't an impaired driver as the troopers initially believed, but rather a kindergarten-aged boy driving his mother's vehicle, according to a tweet from the highway patrol. Turns out it was this young man, age 5, somehow made his way up onto the freeway in his parents' vehicle.

He drove from his home at 17th Street near Lincoln Avenue in Ogden to I-15, which is at least two miles away, KJZZ reported. That would have put him around $264,966 shy of purchasing a 2020 Lamborghini Huracan, according to auto and Driver. The boy told another trooper that he wanted to buy a Lamborghini when he got there and then flashed open his wallet showing his cash to purchase his dream vehicle: $3.

Unfortunately though, he would've been a bit short of the purchase amount - with only $3 in his wallet. "I will be eagerly watching his upcoming career as a criminal, or millionaire, or both".

No one was hurt and no property was damaged, but charges could still be filed against the boy's parents. Together they placed the community in danger.

A brand-new Lamborghini ranges in price from $200,000 for a Huracan to as much as $5 million for limited edition models.
