(Newser) – A horrific story out of Missouri, where a 7-year-old boy took his grandmother's car out for a joyride Friday afternoon, with his 6-year-old brother as passenger, and both ended up dead. Police say the boys drove through a field, then onto a country road, before the car went airborne multiple times, hit a guardrail and guy-wire, overturned, hit a tree, landed upside-down, and caught fire. The children were pronounced dead at the scene, NBC News reports. Neither one was wearing a seatbelt, KMOV reports. (Read more Missouri stories.)
