The Kid’s a Natural

Taloa Foster, 33, of Ada, Okla., says she was driving down the road when one of her 3-year-old twin boys escaped his car seat. While trying to deal with that, she told state troopers, she fell out of the moving pickup truck. The boy grabbed the wheel and kept the truck on the road for three blocks before he finally swerved across all lanes of traffic and was stopped by the curb. Witnesses said as her pickup drove away, she simply walked after it. No one was injured, but troopers observed a nearly-empty liquor bottle on the pickup’s floor, and charged Foster with driving under the influence of alcohol, and child endangerment.
