Ohio 9-year-old takes family's mini-van for a joyride

(LORAIN, OH) - A 9-year-old boy and his younger sister are lucky to be all right after crashing the family mini-van nearly two miles away from their home.

Hunter Lance tells reporters he took his mom's keys because he wanted to see how well he could drive.

The mother was apparently sleeping after her overight shift concluded when the kids took the keys and drove off.

The van spun out of control just before hitting a utility pole and a fence. Officers say the kids are lucky they weren't seriously hurt.
