Boy takes grandma's car for joy ride

The 9-1-1 calls for help tell the story: A 7-year-old-boy steals the keys to his grandma's car taking it out for a joy ride around Palm Beach Gardens.

Caller: "And, the parking lot... He's driving out. Oh, my God."

The boy took out two mailboxes, hit two parked cars and two moving cars all during Friday's busy rush hour.

Witnesses were terrified the child would kill himself or someone else.

Caller: "Went up on a curb, almost hit a tree. He can't even see over the steering wheel."

The treacherous ride ended on Investment Lane not far from where it started.

At least one person was hurt, and a man went to the hospital with a concussion. The little guy is ok.
