NIZHNY NOVGOROD, Russia, July 6 (UPI) -- A 7-year-old Russian boy who stole a car and went for a joyride ended up running over two children, police said.

The boy was visiting relatives Friday in the city of Nizhny Novgorod, when he noticed a Toyota sitting in a parking lot with the windows down and the key in the ignition, RIA Novosti said. He decided to get into the car and go for a ride, but only made it a few feet before hitting other cars and running over a girl and a boy about his age, police said.

The injured children were in stable condition, police said.

No other details on the incident were reported.
