(Newser) – A man in Riverside, Ohio, gave his two children a driving lesson in all the wrong ways. Police say the unidentified man bought a Pontiac G8 and decided to show off for his kids, the oldest one in high school, by doing doughnuts in a Kmart parking lot, reports the Dayton Daily News. At which point, he lost control and struck a live power pole. All three ended up in the hospital, though with non-life threatening injuries, and Dad is being cited for reckless operation. As a post at Auto Blog observes, "this turned out to be a what-not-to-do driving lesson." (Elsewhere, this driver somehow avoided serious injury.)
