While there is an age requirement to get behind the wheel, toddlers seem to always buck the system.

A 6-year-old girl was so set in seeing daddy, she drove mommy’s car and crashed it. The incident occurred early Sunday morning in Pittsburgh while the tot’s mom was sleeping, AP reports.

Though police did not release the name of the girl, she reportedly rammed the car into two parked cars, forcing one to hit a third, before hitting a utility pole and crashing to a stop. She was intent on seeing her father, who was across-town at the time.

Authorities said she was tall for her age and that her height helped her maneuver the car. “How she knew how to operate a car, your guess is as good as mine,” said police Sgt. Jerry Parker, adding that they’re not sure if they’ll be pressing charges against anyone.

The bright side of the ordeal: dad was called in to pick her up at the station, granting the little one’s wish.
