46-year-old Frank Gordon Conway from Indiana is in court after letting his 8-year-old son drive his car, which he crashed into a tree.


Frank let his son sit between his legs and take control of the car, steering and operating the pedals. After driving through streets, car parks and people's gardens, the boy lost control of the car and slammed into a tree.


The little boy badly injured his face and chest, and was rushed to hospital. The severely drunk dad was questioned by the police, telling them he “didn't see a problem” with letting his child drive.


Frank has been charged with child endangerment, reckless endangerment and two summary counts of permitting an unlicensed driver and permitting careless driving.
