Boy, 7, Crashes Car Into Trees

LEHIGH ACRES, Fla. (AP) _ He could barely reach the pedal, but
one 7-year-old boy managed to take the family car out for a spin in
his Lehigh Acres neighborhood.

A Florida Highway Patrol spokesman says John Vega took the keys
to the car, drove it out of his driveway and crashed into several
trees and a mailbox along the way.

Vega is being treated at Lee Memorial Hospital for minor
injuries.

In all, authorities say the boy drove about 200 feet from start
to finish.
