An eight-year-old boy got behind the wheel of a car on Saturday and drove it right into his neighbor's home in Littlerock, a small community just south of Palmdale.

ABC-7 reports that the car smashed through the walls of the house, across the street from the boy's home, and stopped in a bedroom on top of a bed around 12:30 p.m. One person inside the house was taken to the hospital, but the extent of their injuries is not known.

According to KTLA, authorities were still trying to determine how the boy got behind the wheel in the first place. Investigators also did not say yet whether the boy driving was injured in the crash.
