A car was wrecked after being driven by three little children into a street lamp, police in the United Kingdom said.

Norfolk Police said that the three children, all under the age of 9, stole their mother’s car and crashed it.

The children, who are believed to be around eight, six, and one years old, took the keys while their mother slept. They got into the car around 6:00 a.m. on Wednesday.

One child took the wheel as the other two sat in the back. The car almost hit a parked vehicle across an intersection before jumping a curb and crashing into the light pole.

Police responded to the scene in Wymondham, Norfolk. The children were not injured, but the car suffered damage.

Police said that the mother was sleeping when it all happened. The mother of the children was later seen at the door of her home and appeared to be crying.

Police launched an investigation into the incident, and so far, no charges have been filed.
