He could barely reach the pedal, but one 7-year-old boy managed to take the family car out for a spin in his Lehigh Acres neighborhood.

A Florida Highway Patrol spokesman says John Vega took the keys to the car, drove it out of his driveway and crashed into several trees and a mailbox along the way.

Vega is being treated at Lee Memorial Hospital for minor injuries.

In all, authorities say the boy drove about 200 feet from start to finish.
