A dangerous drive in Florida left people in shock after a toddler took a four-wheeler out for a cruise on the highway.

Police said the boy snuck out of the house while his father was in the bathroom.

Then he took off, and a passerby snapped several photos.

Some Good Samaritans saw the boy and ended his joy ride.

"Could have ended a lot differently if not for the people who stopped,” witness Danny Collins said. 

The father of the little boy is now under investigation.
