5 Year Old Drives To Find Mother, A lack of communication between parents is a bit Mansfield, Ohio girl alone at home on Tuesday. The situation went from bad to worse when 5 years old, decided to ride in the family car to find her mother.

The 911call arrived just after seven last night. “9-1-1. What is your emergency?” says the 911 operator.
“Um, my mother’s car backed out of the accident and the police need to take my mother’s car back,” says the girl of 5 years of age.

A fear that sounds like 5 years old, tells the operator that he is alone at home and not know where her mom. “It’s very dark in here and looked everywhere.”
“When I got off the bus, but my mom was not here and I miss a lot.”
“It’s all right honey, Mommy’s coming back. Mom was probably looking for you,” the operator says.

Turns out it was just the opposite.

“And he tried to drive the car to go get my mom,” says Ryan Grimshaw, a Mansfield police officer.

Ryan Grimshaw Officer responded to the house to find the mother SUV rolled backward out of the driveway on the street and a neighbor’s yard.

“You could say that she just followed exactly what her mother probably does when he gets into the car. I mean, put the keys in the ignition, put it in the drive and turned on the headlights as if ready to lead as an adult, “Grimshaw says.

Something that the girl was ready to confess to the operator.

“Did mother park her car on the street or you get in the car and go across the street?” the operator says.

“Um, someone moved through the streets. The car is in operation now. You have to come quickly. My mom will be mad at me,” says the girl.

With the help of dispatchers, Grimshaw was able to reach parents and clarify the confusion. The best possible outcome of a situation that could have ended very differently.

“She was right to call 911, but if I come home and called an aunt or grandmother or someone, who could have been avoided quite quickly,” says Grimshaw.
