Boy, 6, swears off future Applebee’s runs

October 12, 2007


— A 6-year-old boy who tried to drive his grandmother's car to Applebee's said he won't do it again.

Josh Barber said he was hungry for some chicken nuggets when he woke up early Tuesday while his grandmother was still sleeping. His mother was recovering from surgery at the time and his father was still at work.

After Josh tried to drive off, he was unable to take the car out of reverse. He backed up 75 feet from her house into a transformer, knocking out electricity and phone service to dozens of townhouses in the Denver suburb of Broomfield.

Josh's grandmother, Claudia Price, said he ran into the house to tell her what had happened.

"He just yelled 'Grandma, Grandma, I was driving your car and I hit something,"' she said.
