A Mid-Michigan man is facing charges after police say he let a 9-year-old boy behind the wheel of a truck which rolled over and struck a tree in a neighbor’s backyard.

Four adults were at an outdoor party when they decided to take a vehicle and drive it around to the front. The driver then put a 9-year-old child in the front seat with him and it was then that the boy stepped on the gas pedal, sending the car out of control, knocking down a neighbor’s fence before finally coming to a stop by crashing into a tree.

The four adults were taken to an area hospital due to the crash. Alcohol was involved. Police hope to file charges in days, you can watch the full story here from WNEM.
