  • A 13-year-old boy apparently climbed into the driver's seat and pressed the accelerator

A father from Ireland got a shock last week as he was loading the car with cases at a property in San Pedro before driving to Malaga Airport.

With the motor running in the garage, according to investigators, his 13-year-old son climbed into the driver's seat and pressed the accelerator.

The car shot out, crossed over two lanes on Avenida Santiago de Compostela, knocking over the fence and stopping in the school yard at Laude San Pedro International College.
