WEST BEND, WI (WTAQ) - No charges will be sought, after a 9-year-old child drove a car for four miles from a boat dealership near West Bend to try and get to grandma's house.

It happened late Saturday afternoon.

According to Washington County sheriff's deputies, several motorists followed the 9-year-old driver, who had a 4-year-old relative in the car.

Officials said the driver went west on Highway 33, and then south on 144. The vehicle got to County Trunk "K" before witnesses got the car to stop and took the keys.

Nobody was hurt, and the vehicle was not damaged. Police and human service officials continue to investigate.
