Federal Way, Washington, police officers probably witnessed one of the most bizarre car crash case of their careers when they found a Volvo T-boned at an intersection by an SUV driven by — wait for it — a couple of preschoolers.
The two preschoolers, according to Federal Way police department, had set out on a secret mission to visit their grandma. They stole their parents’ car keys and managed to drive to a nearby intersection.
Then their neighbors heard a loud crash and when they rushed out they discovered the 3-year-old and 5-year-old had crashed into another vehicle.
Fortunately, the children were unharmed. The driver of the Volvo suffered minor cuts and bruises.
“I held the kids both in their hands and I said, ‘Where’s your mom?’ [They said], ‘Sleeping. I want to go to my grandma’s house,’” Annemarie Warren, the children’s neighbor, told KOMO News. “I was waiting for the mother to come out, too, you know?”
It is not yet clear if the parents could face any charges.
"My reaction was, thankfully they're OK," Fred Axberg, a local resident who also heard the crash. "For sure they had an angel."
