ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Alaska State Troopers say a 6-year-old boy climbed on top of his parents' minivan and rode it for three miles down a highway before he fell off and suffered cuts and bruises.
Trooper spokeswoman Beth Ipsen tells the Anchorage Daily News (http://bit.ly/13loTtW ) the boy has apparently gone for roof rides before, hanging on to the bars mounted on the minivan.
The boy told troopers he climbed on to the vehicle Sunday as it left his home at Mile 52 on the Parks Highway about 10 miles north of Wasilla. He lost his grip at Mile 49. The driver continued on.
Another motorist picked the boy up, drove him to a gas station and called 911.
Ipsen says no one has been charged with a traffic violation or crime.
