A 7-year-old boy in Michigan took a car on a joyride and it's all caught on tape.

Police dashcam video in Caseville shows authorities following the young boy driving the red vehicle. The little boy reached speeds up to 50 mph.

He drove more than 20 miles before authorities finally got him to stop. The boy told officers he took his step-father's car while his mother was asleep.

He said he just wanted to go see his biological father who lives nearby. Investigators say the boy's mother could face charges.
