    So this happened.

    A 3-year-old boy found the keys to the family’s Jeep Wrangler, crashed the vehicle into a Oregon home, and then dashed home to watch cartoons.

    We can’t make this stuff up.

    According to CNN:

    The 3-year-old boy was under his mother’s watch in Myrtle Creek when the incident happened last week, Police Officer Kevin Taggart said.

    She was not paying attention to him and he found the keys, got inside the car and knocked it out of gear, according to Taggart.

    A witness called 911 after seeing the child rolling by in the Jeep before hitting the house. Sensing he was in trouble, the toddler jumped out of the car and dashed home.

    And to prove he’s a pro, the diaper-clad kid had his alibi in full effect.

    “An officer went to the boy’s home — and the boy was sitting on the couch watching cartoons like nothing ever happened,” Taggart said.

    The mother was cited for failure to supervise the child. She and the homeowner have made a civil arrangement on the repair to the house, authorities said.

    “We want to encourage parents to remember that children are very crafty in finding ways to get in trouble and for parents to be very vigilant,” Taggart said.

    Crafty indeed — what a nice touch the cartoons were.
