Boys unharmed after crashing truck at Tim Hortons

JARVIS, Ont. — An eight-year-old boy and his six-year-old brother escaped unharmed after they allegedly crashed their parents’ truck at a Tim Hortons coffee shop in southwestern Ontario.

Provincial police say the boys took the pickup truck around 7 a.m. Thursday to go to the restaurant to get some breakfast.

They say the eight-year-old, who was driving, lost control of the vehicle in the Tim Hortons’ drive-thru in Jarvis, Ont.

The truck hopped the curb and veered into a field where it became stuck.

Police say a Tim Hortons’ employee checked on the truck and discovered the children.

No charges were laid and the boys were turned over to their parents.
