    NEW CASTLE, Pa. (AP) (AP)ong> - The mother of an 8-year-old boy has been charged with endangering him for allegedly letting him play in a vehicle that slipped out of park and crashed.

    According to police, Mary Cole, 34, was charged late last week in the May 14 incident.

    Officials said Cole told them she knew there was an extra ignition key in the van and said her son often climbs into the vehicle to listen to music.

    Police said they found a key in the ignition after the car rolled down the hill and struck another vehicle. The boy rolled out the driver's side door, but suffered no broken bones. He was released from a Pittsburgh hospital on Wednesday.
