ONTARIO, Ore. – An Oregon couple in their 70s got into a pretty embarrassing car mix-up outside an Ontario store.

It all started when an 84-year-old woman parked her Oldsmobile Cutlass outside a store and left the keys inside.

A little while later, the couple in their 70's saw the car and thought it was theirs. They got in, started the car and drove home.

Five days later, they got a call asking why they had left their real car at the store.

Detectives got involved and figured out what had happened. The real owner of the car got it back and no charges have been filed.

(Photo above is not the actual car, but is similar.)
