OSHKOSH, Wis. (CBS/AP) A toddler in Oshkosh is okay after taking his mother's car out for short spin down the block.

Police say the mother of the 3-year-old boy told officers her son was asleep in the 1985 Buick sedan when she left it running and ran into the house for a moment Wednesday morning.

When she returned, the car was gone.

Police say the boy knelt on the seat, pulled down on the gear shift lever and started to roll down the block.

The car had traveled nearly two blocks before an officer was able to stop the vehicle.
