"I was leaning against a stop sign, then all of a sudden I looked to my right and I saw my car, my Mercedes Benz coming towards me. Wait a minute," Angela said to local news website 11Alive, as quoted by Lad Bible. 

"Looked in the car. It was him, it was PJ."

Angela further explained that PJ chose Mercedes-Benz as the keys were easily accessible, adding that her grandson was "calm and collected" as he drove her to the medical professionals. 

Adding that the young boy didn't "go up the curb, in the grass or nothing", Angela said that PJ moved cars around for his grandfather and owned a dirt bike, a four-wheeler, suggesting that the experience helped him in the need of the hour. 

Speaking on any rewards for PJ for his bravery, the grandmother said: "He's an extra special little boy and he doesn't ask for anything in return."
