A 10-year-old boy allegedly got behind the wheel of a truck in West Philadelphia this afternoon and struck several parked cars.

Shortly before 1 p.m., a man left his 2001 Ford truck unattended while he unloaded furniture on Market Street near 62nd, police said. The boy took the keys to the truck, which were left in the rear door of the vehicle, and got behind the wheel and drove police said.

He made it less than a block before he hit five parked cars, police said. No injuries were reported and neighbors were able to hold the youth until police arrived.

The boy will be charged with stealing an automobile and related offenses, according to police.
