Philadelphia police are investigating an incident in which a 10-year-old boy crashed a stolen van into several cars..

Police say it happened Sunday around 12:57 p.m. Investigators say the owner of a 2001 white Ford van parked his vehicle while unloading furniture from an apartment on Market Street.

Police say the 10-year-old removed the keys from a rear door, stole the truck and drove it into five parked cars.
