Boy, 12, Drove Car for 1,300km

A 12-year-old boy who apparently drove 1,300 kilometres across New South Wales on his own in the family car was involved in a crash before he was eventually stopped by highway patrol officers.

The boy was en route to Perth when he was pulled over at Broken Hill in far west NSW on Saturday morning.

He had left his home in Kendall, near Port Macquarie, about 11.10am on Friday.

“He’d taken the family car,” Detective Inspector Kim Fehon said on Monday.

“His parents reported him missing immediately after he left home, so they were looking for him.”

Officers were still investigating why the boy took the car and attempted to cross the country.
