Autistic 6-year-old drives toy ATV onto highway, saved by quick thinking drivers

An autistic 6-year-old boy drove a toy ATV onto the Bronx River Parkway outside of New York City in Westchester County. Police say he was pulled over by good samaritans and was unhurt.

Family members reportedly lost track of the boy as he rode on the Power Wheels toy and he soon made his way to the parkway.  His family realized he was gone pretty quickly and contacted police.

The boy didn’t make it too far before drivers slowed down to surround him from other vehicles. Someone was able to eventually get out and grab him and he was taken to the hospital for observation.
