Authorities say a 5-year-old looking for her mother in Ohio backed a car out of the driveway, then called 911 for help.
Mansfield police say Ameleah Kegley backed the car out Monday evening after returning from school to an empty house.
The girl's mother had gone to the hospital with an emergency and her
father never got the message.
Worried that her mother wasn't home, Ameleah decided to look for her, starting her mother's 1999 Lincoln Navigator.
It backed down the sloped driveway and came to a stop on grass across the street.
The girl dialed 911, explained the situation and asked for quick help getting the car back home, because she said her mom would be upset with her.
