EDWARDS, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

An active scene of law enforcement shut down both lanes of Frontage Road in Edwards early Thursday morning.

According to the Sheriff's office, an 11-year-old stole his grandparents car and then wrecked it on Frontage Road.

Hinds Co. Sheriff's officials said they received a call just before 6:00 a.m. this morning from a grandparent stating their 11 year old grandson had been kidnapped.

After further investigation, it was determined that the boy took his grandparent's red 1996 Chevy Blazer to visit a friend around 3:00 a.m.

In an attempt to get back home before anyone discovered his plan, the boy lost control of the SUV on Frontage Road near Edwards.

The SUV flipped multiple times injuring the 11-year-old. 

MHP, Hinds County SO, and First Responders were all on scene.

The child told police several different stories explaining what happened.

The Sheriff said this isn't the first time the child has stolen a vehicle. He stole another vehicle last week and stole an ATV a few weeks ago. 

He has been taken to the hospital with minor injuries and is expected to be okay.

The child's grandparents say they will be pressing charges. They said they pressed charges last time he stole a car but the police just let him go after they evaluated him.

According to the grandparents, the state is not offering help or options.

The grandparents hope to get him into a facility that will help him long-term.
