A toddler was behind the wheel of a van that crashed into a house in northwest Houston last night.

A man says he was working on a van at the home on Twinbrooke near Ella when his child somehow put the vehicle into gear.

The van knocked over Shaunta Johnson's mailbox, rolled through the yard and slammed into the side of her house.

Johnson was inside the house at the time. Luckily, she was not in the kitchen where the van hit.

"I thought that was crazy; very absurd," Johnson said. "How can a two- to three-year-old toddler be driving a van and push it across the hump and knock my mailbox down?"

No one was hurt.
