KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A quest for a Happy Meal did not have a happy ending.
A 10-year-old girl from Missouri wanted to go to McDonald's on Wednesday morning, but her mother was still asleep. Craving a McDonald's meal, the child hopped into her mother's SUV and crashed it into a minivan and electrical box, WDAF reported.
Kansas City officers responded to the crash at 7:45 a.m. and were surprised when the driver of a Chevrolet Tahoe was the 10-year-old, KMBC reported. The girl was taken to a hospital with minor bruises.
Police said the girl became lost after driving a few miles.
"She attempted to turn at 12th and Olive," a police spokesman told KMBC. "But since she was an unlicensed 10-year-old, she failed to yield to the Honda coming in the opposite direction."
The other driver was not injured, police said. Both cars were heavily damaged, according to WDAF.
