GJOVIK, Norway, Feb. 13 (UPI) -- Norwegian police said a 10-year-old boy who got his family's car stuck in a snowy ditch attempted to pass himself off as a dwarf.

Vestoppland Police Officer Kai Lyshaugen said the boy and his 18 month old sister awoke in the night and he decided to bring the toddler along for a joyride in the family car to their grandmother's house, about 18 miles away, TheLocal.no reported Thursday.

Police said the car ended up in a ditch and the boy told a passing snowplow driver he was dwarf of legal driving age and ended up stuck when he tried to make a U-turn to go back home for his driver's license.

"He asked for help to tow his vehicle so they could continue their journey," Lyshaugen said.

Lyshaugen said the boy and the toddler, who were not wearing seat belts, were not harmed. The children were returned to their parents.
