Oregon State Police say a 6-year-old told authorities after he crashed his mother's minivan that he had left his home hungry and wanted to go buy food.

      Hoof it over to Facebook to join the weird news herd.

State troopers say the van the boy was driving crashed into several mailboxes in the Klamath Falls area on Sunday, and then swerved into an opposite lane before hitting a Dodge pickup.

The boy, who was alone in the van, did not suffer any injuries. He told authorities he had taken a roll of pennies from his family's apartment to get some food.

Troopers say the woman driving the pickup received minor injuries.

The boy's name has not been released. State police and the Department of Human Services were continuing to investigate the crash.
