Car rams into home with a child behind the wheel


ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- It was a frightening afternoon for a young boy who was behind the wheel of a car that rolled out of control and into a house on Sunday.

It happened just after 3:00 p.m. on the 4800 block of 28th Street SE in Rochester.

Police on scene tell us the boy, under the age of ten, was playing inside of his parents parked Ford Focus and apparently shifted it into neutral.

The car rolled backward down a hill, between two trees, and through the yard before slamming into the entryway of a home.

No one was home at the time and the boy was not hurt.
