5-year-old Canadian boy takes the family car to go gift shopping

RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Rachel Martin.

Heading out to shops looking for gifts is something a lot of parents do this time of year. It's a little less common for the kids themselves. Ontario Provincial Police were fairly surprised when they found a car on the side of the road with a 5-year-old driver. The child had taken the family car to the store to buy a pink toy tractor for his sister. Thankfully, the child wasn't hurt, and the vehicle had only minimal damage - no word on if the kid found another way to get the tractor.
