• Officer noticed an SUV driving erratically and swerving between lanes in Ogden
• When he pulled over the car he was shocked to find young boy behind the wheel
• Boy had been planning to drive to California to buy a Lamborghini with $3
A Utah Highway Patrol officer was shocked to find a five-year-old boy behind the wheel of a car during a traffic stop.
Trooper Rick Morgan noticed an SUV driving erratically and swerving between lanes on a freeway in Ogden, Utah just before noon on Monday.
Morgan thought the driver must have been suffering a medical emergency, but when he pulled over the car he was shocked to find the young boy behind the wheel.
The boy could barely see over the steering wheel.
'My speedometer showed 32 miles-per-hour,' Morgan told Fox 13. 'It amazed me that when he heard my siren, he did pull over and stop.'
'When I got to the window and the window came down, I wasn't quite sure what to think.
'It was pretty clear when the window came down, it was a young, very underage driver.'
Dash cam footage shows the officer asking the boy where he had been driving to.
'California,' the boy replied. Police say he had been trying to reach his sister's house in California, and had planned to buy a Lamborghini when he got there, with the three dollars in his purse.
The 5-year-old told troopers he had left the house after an argument with his mother, after she told him she wouldn't buy him a Lamborghini.
Police believe the boy had already driven for several miles from his Ogden home before he was pulled over.
'It likely would have been much worse had he gone much further,' Morgan told the publication. 'He was sitting on the front edge of his seat so he could reach the brake pedal.'
The visibly shaken-up boy, who was 'on the verge of tears', was eventually reunited with his parents.
