OLOFSTROM, Sweden, Jan. 26 (UPI) -- A Swedish octogenarian accidentally drove the wrong car home from the grocery store, officials said.

The woman got into what she thought was her car and, finding the keys in the ignition, simply drove home, police said. It wasn't until the woman's daughter questioned where a bag that had been in the car came from that the mix up was reported.

The daughter said the car parked in her mother's garage bore no resemblance to her mother's actual car and called police. The owner of the car had already reported it stolen, though they admitted to leaving the keys inside, TheLocal.se said Friday.

Police said the car was returned and no charges are being filed.
