Two kids take the family van for a spin, but the drivers behind the wheel were five and seven year old boys.    

It happened Wednesday afternoon in Clinton. No one was hurt, but it was all caught on camera. 

The Ganzer family can still see the tracks the van left in their backyard, and they're still recovering from the shock. 

"They jumped the curb, totally missed that sign, missed the telephone pole," Alanna Ganzer says, "It's all mind boggling really, it's always what if what if what if."    

The two boys took a van for a joy ride, with the five year old pumping the gas and the seven year old behind the wheel.  

"It's just really crazy they weren't hurt, what made them even think to get in their mom's car?" Ganzer says. 

Surveillance footage from a nearby business shows the kids driving the van up over the sidewalk, dodging telephone poles, and cutting across traffic.  

"I have no idea how a young person like that could steer the steering wheel the way they were doing and operating the gas pedals," Neighbor Larry Law says.

The two children drove three blocks before ending in the Ganzers' backyard, crashing into a shed and moving it a couple feet.  

"There was cars coming and they just totally cut them off and then, and for them to barely miss the tree? I mean luckily nobody was outside, it could've turned out crazy," Ganzer says. 

Neighbors say this road usually has heavy traffic and lots of kids playing outside, they're just thankful and amazed no one got hurt.  

"I couldn't believe there wasn't traffic at that time, that somebody didn't get hit and get hurt," Law says. 

"Can they really grasp what happened and how lucky they really are?" Ganzer says.Police say charges will most likely not be filed in the case.
