LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) - It was a scary Sunday morning for drivers on U.S. 95 as they dealt with a very slow moving SUV piloted by a 9 year old boy.

Police say the boy took mom's car keys when she was taking a shower and headed out, eventually getting onto U.S. 95 north of the Spaghetti Bowl and taking the freeway north all the way to Craig Road.

Dashcam video taken by a driver behind the SUV showed the 9 year-old driving very slowly swerving in and out of the travel lanes. No accidents occurred. Police were able to pull over the SUV near Craig and Decatur.

No charges are expected to be filed in the case.
