MYRTLE CREEK, Oregon (AP) — Police say a toddler crashed a Jeep into an Oregon house, then ran back to his home to watch cartoons.

Authorities say the three-year-old boy, who was wearing only a diaper, climbed into the Jeep last Tuesday evening and knocked it out of gear. Witnesses say it rolled down the street, through an intersection and into the house, causing minor damage.

KPTV reported an officer found the boy on a couch watching TV as if nothing had happened.

He said his parents weren't home and another relative was sleeping. Police cited 22-year-old Brennan Pennington for failing to supervise a child.
