Two-Year-Old Drives SUV While Parents Sleep

A two-year-old child was not injured after climbing in the family's SUV as it rolled down their driveway.

The parents think the toddler took the keys while her parents were asleep, according to the York County Sheriff's Office in South Carolina. Witnesses said the Tahoe came rolling down the driveway across five lanes of traffic. The SUV made it across the road without being hit by any other cars.

Police said when they arrived to the scene they found the Tahoe on its side and an uninjured little girl. Investigators noticed an open door across the street and went inside to find both parents upstairs asleep. The girl's mother, 26-year-old Amy Patty, did not want to discuss the situation and was mad at all the media attention.

The Department of Social Services is investigating the case. No charges have been filed.
