Father Flips Car During Test Drive With Kids Inside
The following information was supplied by the Sudbury Police Department. Where arrests are mentioned, it does not indicate a conviction.
According to Lt. Scott Nix, a Leominster man was taking a pre-arranged test drive with his three kids in the backseat and the salesman in the passenger side when the vehicle flipped on its side.
By the time emergency personnel arrived, the car was back on its wheels.
The driver told officers who arrived on the scene that he lost control while doing "doughnuts."
Members of the Sudbury Fire Department checked out all of the occupants, who all refused medical transport, Nix said.
As a result of the crash, Sudbury police have filed a 51A report with the Department of Children and Families. All three kids are younger than 10 years old, Nix said.
The case is under investigation for possible future charges.
