SANDUSKY, Ohio (AP) - Ohio troopers say parents who had been drinking let their 15-year-old son drive some 125 miles on a family trip to the Cedar Point amusement park, but their ride ended before they got there when he was stopped for speeding.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol says a trooper stopped their Dodge Caravan going 83 mph in a 70 mph zone Saturday morning near Vermilion, Ohio. The driver told the trooper he didn’t have a driver’s license or permit. The trooper reported that the father in the front seat had been drinking as had the mother, sitting in the rear with their 12-year-old daughter. He said they were obviously impaired.

The father was in jail Sunday on a child endangerment charge. No attorney information was available. Children’s services has been notified.
