MEMPHIS, TN – Cars get repossessed all the time. Kids, not so much.

Well, they’re not supposed to be repossessed, but one Memphis 4-year-old was accidentally taken on a wild ride when his grandma’s car was repossessed.

Ruth Brown said she left her grandson Kevin sleeping in her car while she dashed inside to get someone to help carry him. When she got back out, the car and Kevin were gone.

Well, so did the repo man, who made the 12 minute drive from her home to the company’s lot with no idea he had a stowaway passenger.

So now there’s another good reason to pay your bills: to keep the car, and the kid.
