SAN DIEGO -- A 13-year-old girl crashed her mother's BMW into a home in Encanto Friday morning, the San Diego Police Department said.

Police received a call at about 9:30 a.m. that a vehicle had driven into a home on the 1100 block of Evelyn Street.

SDPD said the car had been parked on the street when the 13-year-old got in and started the vehicle to warm it up for her mom. The car started to roll forward, eventually sliding down an embankment and into the home, severing a water line on the property.

No one was hurt in the accident, including the girl, and police said they were not going to issue the junior driver a ticket for the crash.

A woman inside the home said that she was in the living room with her grandchildren when they heard a "big bang."

"It just scared us," she said. "I'm just glad nobody's hurt and I'm glad my grandkids weren't out here playing."
