Boy, 3, rides scooter in rush hour traffic

FRESNO, California

Take a close look at the red circle on your screen. That's a three-year-old boy riding his toy scooter in rush hour traffic.

The boy is okay, but he was nearly crushed by at least two city buses, and several vehicles.

Police say the boy was in the care of his grandfather -- who went to the bathroom -- then rushed out into the street when he realized the child was missing.

The young boy apparently wanted to go visit his mother who worked at a nearby restaurant.
