A video (below) of 8-year-old Karina Mikulchik driving 60 mph (100 kilometers) near Saint Petersburg, Russia, which was shot by her mother Yelena, has been viewed more than 500,000 times on YouTube.
According to RawStory.com, a man sitting in the passenger seat, possibly her father, yells: “Come on! Accelerate! At least to 100! Don’t be afraid.”
“If Nastya saw me drive a car, she’d pass out right away!” said Mikulchik, who did not appear to be wearing a seatbelt.
After Yelena Mikulchik posted the video on YouTube, it was shown on television and started a police investigation.
