Girl, 9, Drives Car When Mom Falls Ill - Watch

A 9-year old Michigan girl is being hailed a hero after saving her family when her mother had a seizure while driving.

“Sometimes when my mom is cooking dinner, I have to watch them and stuff,” says Jones, referring to her little sisters.

The 9-year old’s take-charge instinct kicked in recently on the way school.

“I was just driving her to school like any other day and I, I woke up a few hours later in the hospital,” says Samantha Jones, Jayce’s mother.

The elder Jones was driving the family’s Hyundai down the curvy, Westside Saginaw Road back in September when she had a seizure.

Jacey was sitting in the back of the car–her sister right next to her when her mother started having a seizure in the front seat. That’s when Jacey climbed from the back, grabbed the steering wheel and was able to steer the car safely into the school parking lot.
