NORWALK, Conn. -- A Norwalk man was arrested Saturday after his 12-year-old son crashed a car into their neighbor's house, according to police.

Giuseppe Manugas, 45, was charged with risk of injury to a minor and allowing a person under 16 to operate a motor vehicle. He will appear in court Aug. 1.

The incident occurred shortly after 2:30 p.m. Saturday. Police said Manugas let his 12-year-old son back their car out of their driveway on College Street.

The boy was supposed to back out and pull forward, but police said he pushed the gas pedal and lost control of the car. The car backed across the street and hit a neighbor's house, according to police reports.

Nobody was injured in the incident, and the house sustained minor damage, police said.

Maybe the Daily Voice can work on bringing sanity back to this comment section.

Its all one right wing troll that has destroyed this site.. He posts as www.norwalktroll.com and natsgarage. It has been banned from every other site except this and topix. The strange thing is the troll doesn't even live in Norwalk but in fact Port Chester NY.

Ok Great now maybe Norwalk's failures can get to work on solving the100's of shootings and killings of the past 5 years.. ALL UNSOLVED
