BORAS, Sweden, Nov. 20 (UPI) -- Officials in a Swedish city said they are investigating after a school transportation driver had a man on a tractor give a ride to a 14-year-old boy.

Mikael Heden, the boy's father, said his son, Johan, was receiving a ride home from the school transport service, which has been operated by taxi company Taxi Kurir since 2010, when the driver "ran out of fuel" about 5 miles from Heden's home, The Local.se reported Tuesday.

The driver flagged down a man who was running a tractor nearby and asked him to take the boy home. Heden said he and his son are not familiar with the man, who rode the tractor to his own home with the teenager and switched it out for a car.

"Neither I nor my son have any idea who the man was, but it was very kind of him to take Johan home," Heden said.

Christer Norberg, head of transportation services in Boras, said an emergency meeting has been called with the taxi company to probe the incident as well as other complaints.

"There have been too many complaints and we want to hear their version of events. We have clear demands and they must follow these," Norberg said.
