Police say nobody was hurt after a nine-year-old driving a neighbour's vehicle got into a collision in Mississauga, Ont., on Sunday.

Peel regional police say the child, whose gender was not given, asked a neighbour if they could operate the vehicle at about 6 p.m.

Investigators say that the neighbour allowed the child to reverse the vehicle, but that when the child tried to pull it forward, they lost control.

Officers say the vehicle then struck another vehicle in a nearby driveway.

They say the adult who allowed the child to operate the vehicle may face charges.
