A 13-year-old Beijing boy stole a city bus when its driver stopped for a bathroom break, going on a wild joyride that left a trail of smashed cars and other damage, state media said last Monday.
The incident began when a bus driver returned from the bathroom in eastern Beijing to find his bus gone, Xinhua news agency said.
The vehicle had been driven off by the 13-year-old, who drove through traffic, crashing into two cars on the road and about 10 parked vehicles, and knocked down two electricity poles, it said.
No one was injured in the incident.
“It was like watching a movie when I saw the bus crashing into cars like a bulldozer,” Xinhua quoted a man surnamed Liu as saying.
“I threw my canteen and ran for my life.”
Passers-by eventually kicked the bus door open and seized the boy.
“He was thin...and trembling, but did not say a word,” said a man surnamed Chen, who helped stop the bus.(AFP)
