Girl, 6, Takes Moms Car, Tries To Drive To Dad’s House

PITTSBURGH (February 4, 2013)--A determined 6-year-old girl didn't hurt anyone when she crashed her mother's car while trying to drive across town to visit her father, police in Pittsburgh said.

Police haven't released the name of the girl whose mother was still sleeping when the girl took the car keys at around 9 a.m. Sunday and drove off.

Police Sgt. Jerry Parker told reporters the little girl is tall for her age.

But he said, “How she knew how to operate a car, your guess is as good as mine."

Police say the car the girl was driving hit two parked vehicles, pushing one of them into a third, before hitting a utility pole.

Police and the girl's father arrived to take her home after the accident.

Police are still investigating and haven't said if anyone will face charges.
