TULSA, Okla. – An Oklahoma teenager was treated for minor injuries after crashing into an elementary school early Friday morning.
Around 4:30 a.m. on Friday, Tulsa police received a 911 call about a driver walking away from the scene of a crash. Another bystander also called police and waited with the driver for emergency crews to arrive at the scene.
Investigators say the teenager was speeding and ran through a stop sign. At that point, the teen’s Chevy Tahoe crashed through a chainlink fence before it hit the side of McKinley Elementary School.
The Tahoe suffered extensive damage to the front end, but did not cause a lot of damage to the building.
Authorities say the teenager will face several citations for running a stop sign, being out past curfew and leaving the scene of an accident.
