Broth­ers, 8 and 6, crash pickup at Tim Hor­tons try­ing to get break­fast

The Hamilton Spectator - - LOCAL -

JARVIS — An eight-year-old boy was caught be­hind the wheel of a pickup truck with his six-year-old brother in the pas­sen­ger seat after they crashed while try­ing to get some break­fast at Tim Hor­tons.

An em­ployee at the Main Street North cof­fee shop in Jarvis called po­lice shortly be­fore 7 a.m. Thurs­day after the pickup ap­peared to lose con­trol near the drive-thru, trav­el­ling over a curb and into a field where it was stuck, said Haldimand County OPP spokesper­son Const. Rod LeClair.

The em­ployee went to check on the oc­cu­pants and found the two boys un­in­jured inside. The pickup was not dam­aged.

LeClair says the boys took the pickup from their res­i­dence and wanted to get some break­fast. They were turned over to their par­ents who at­tended the scene.

No charges were laid.
