MYRTLE CREEK, Oregon: Police say a toddler crashed a Jeep into a home, then ran back to his home to watch cartoons.

Authorities say the 3-year-old boy who was wearing only a diaper climbed into the Jeep Tuesday evening and knocked it out of gear. Witnesses say it rolled down the street, through an intersection and into the house, causing minor damage.

KPTV reports (http://bit.ly/1rhWlK6) an officer found the boy on a couch watching TV.

He said his parents weren't home and another relative was sleeping. Police cited 22-year-old Brennan Pennington for failing to supervise a child.
