(Scroll down for video) A red pickup up truck slammed into the wall of a couple’s home after their 2-year-old neighbor decided to take his parents’ vehicle for a joy ride, according to police reports in Georgia.

Police said that the toddler was able to put the truck’s gear into drive while his father was unloading packages from the back. The boy managed to drive the truck through a wall of the neighbor’s house across the street.

George and Kathleen Williams returned to their Grayson, Georgia home after a long day of shopping only to find the red truck sticking halfway out from their one family house.

“It was the little red pickup truck from the other side of the street,” George Williams said. “It was driven by a 2-year-old child,” he added.

“Somehow, the child was able to put the car in gear and drove at a relatively slow speed on the street,” Gwinnett County police officer Jake Smith said.

The child was not injured, but the truck broke through an outside wall and two windows in the basement of Williams’ home. Williams said that the truck broke a gas line and a water line.

“The boy didn’t mean to do it, so it makes no difference,” Williams said. “Nobody was hurt, and as I said, things can be repaired, while people cannot,” he also said.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view
