Isiah Edwards, only 8 years-old, got into his mother's car for a joy ride, getting behind the wheel of the older model Dodge.

Neighbors say the car backed out of his driveway on Dove Run in Nicholasville and sat in the middle of the road, but they didn't know there was a child inside.

Neighbor Matthew Carroll says when he realized what happened and saw the incident unfold, he tried to get the boy out of the car.

But he says he got hit instead. He says Isiah managed to hit his house and then reversed and hit a tree as well.

Isiah's mother says it was an accident and is trying to make sure it doesn't happen again.

Both Edwards and Carroll were treated for minor injuries.

    Oh come on this child is not watched and its easy to see. I'm sorry but this child doesn't behave like an 8 year old and Mother doesn't seem to act much older. Were is Social Services when they are needed? Advice to Mother. CLEAN up and brush your hair, put on nice clothes, and try to act like a responsible adult when appearing on TV. Everyone is going to see you.

    "Accident" yeah..... I'm sure he'll get punished really bad...probably take him to Chuck E Cheese! Pathatic! Pathatic! Pathatic. At 8 years old I would have been scared to death to touch my parents keys, afraid of the REAL punishment they would inflict on me. Then again, that "was then"...when parents TAUGHT their children and were able to truly punish us and TEACH US a lesson.
