A 2-year-old boy put a vehicle in gear at a gas station Thursday in Dent causing damage to the building and vehicle, according to the Otter Tail County Sheriff’s Office.
The mother was inside the store just before 7 p.m. when the boy climbed from the back seat into the driver’s seat, put the car into reverse and backed into the building, damaging a fire extinguisher case. He then put the vehicle into drive and hit a gas pump protection pipe.
The building had minor damage. The vehicle had a broken rear window and a dented front bumper. There were no injuries. There were three other kids in the car at the time.
No citations were issued.
