[su_right_ad]The Saskatoon, Saskatchewan boy saw the bus, hopped in, and started driving.

Police spokesman Sgt. Ryan Smith said the boy, dressed in pajamas, managed to drive three blocks through a residential area, making two right turns in the process. He also notes that the boy had to drive standing up, because his tiny little bus thief legs weren’t long enough to reach the pedals. From CNN:

Steve Pasqualotto, a reporter for CNN partner CBC, said said he was driving down Idywyld Drive, a busy thoroughfare, when “my wife looked out her window and saw a city bus and said, ‘There’s a boy driving that bus.’ “…

According to Smith, the boy only stopped when he ran into another city bus and a pickup truck, totaling the truck.

No one was injured in the accident, and the boy reportedly won’t be charged with anything because he’s too young to be arrested under Saskatoon law.[su_csky_ad]

    He did better than me. I would have overturned the bus.

    Now all he needs are some stolen firearms for his next caper!

    He would have done it sooner but couldn’t reach the pedals

    Hey, Pink Panther was coming on in, like, 3 minutes so he had to get home.
    Did the same thing myself, 3 or 4 times, at least……
