Fulda - In a freak accident, a five-year-old boy managed to start his parents' car outside a kindergarten in Fulda in Hesse, Germany, seriously injuring a mother and her son.
The boy was sitting alone in the Peugeot 307 after his mother collected him from the kindergarten on Thursday afternoon.
Boys being boys, he turned the ignition key and started the car, which jerkily moved forward. A woman and her two-year-old son were standing in front of the car at the time and were driven back into a hedge and trapped under the vehicle. The car was then stopped by the curb.
The boy's 36-year-old mother was apparently also standing in front of the car, talking to the other parent, but managed to jump out of the way.
The mother then jumped into the car and reversed it to free the woman and child.
According to police, the injuries are serious, but not life-threatening. Repairs to the car will cost around 300 euros.
