(CBS4) BROOMFIELD, Colo. A 6-year-old boy crashed his grandmother's car in Broomfield Tuesday morning while attempting to drive down the street for lunch, police said.

The boy's mother was reportedly sick and his father was at work. He got hungry, police said, and grabbed his car seat and the keys to his grandmother's car at about 8:30 a.m.

The boy somehow started the vehicle and was able to drive it in reverse about 80 feet before coming to a stop.

He went 47 feet before hitting a curb, police said, and then kept going another 29 feet before hitting an electrical box. The crash caused a small power outage in the neighborhood near 120th Avenue and Greenway Drive.

The boy was not injured.

The grandmother was able to get the child as police arrived. Officers said the boy told them he was hungry and wanted to go to the nearby Applebee's to get lunch.
