6-Year-old goes for a joy ride in mother's car

LAWRENCEVILLE, Pa. -- A six-year-old in Pennsylvania went on a joy ride Tuesday.  Police say the little girl took her mom's BMW while she was sleeping.

The girl wanted to go see her father.

She only drove a mile, but did some damage along the way. She hit several parked cars and eventually lost control, backed into a neighbor's yard and hit a pole.

"When she was coming toward me, and I'm like, what is she doing? I couldn't tell it was a young girl at the time, so I kind of just stepped behind the tree. She hit the curb here, then she took off and I was looking at her, that's when I saw that she was a child and I was like, stop, stop, stop," said Rommie Hawkins, neighbor.

No charges have been filed as police continue their investigation.
