An SUV crashed through the windows of a Colorado DMV this week after a 10-year-old girl got behind the wheel, and now the child could face legal consequences.

A woman visiting the DMV center in Parker, Colo., Monday left her 12- and 10-year-old daughters in the car, which was not running, when she went in to run an errand. According to CBS Denver, the younger daughter then got behind the wheel, started the car, and shifted it into gear.

The SUV rolled about 20 or 30 feet at a slow rate of speed before crashing through the glass windows of the DMV center. Local reports claimed there were about 12 people inside the office at the time, but luckily no one was injured.

The girl's mother reportedly went up alongside the SUV and told her daughter how to apply the brakes in order to stop the vehicle.

Police Sgt. Andy Coleman responded to the scene and ticketed the girl for reckless driving. According to Colorado law, anyone age 10 or older can be charged with a crime, The Associated Press reported.

The mother will not receive a citation because she did not leave the SUV running, Coleman told reporters.

The Parker DMV closed early Monday after the accident, but employees said they hoped repairs could be made in time to open on Tuesday.
