(CNN)Police officers were in for a shock when they responded to an early Wednesday morning traffic accident in Utah between a four-door sedan and a semi-truck.

The driver and passenger in the car were both children.
Officers arrived at around 5 a.m. on Wednesday “and discovered the person behind the wheel was a 9-year-old girl,” the West Valley City Police Department said in a Facebook post.
“The young girl and her 4-year-old sister apparently snagged the keys to the family car while their parents were sleeping,” police said.
“The girls drove about 10 miles from their home in West Jordan” and managed to get on a highway and a freeway approaching West Valley City, said the post.
Before exiting the freeway, the car hopped a median and slammed “head-on into a semi truck,” said police.
