During their investigation, police officials confirmed that the driver was a 15-year-old girl who was driving her mother’s minivan. Under Washington state law, you cannot legally obtain a driver’s license until you are at least 16 years of age.

Details are limited and the minor’s name is not being released at this time. If charges are being pressed, the teen would be booked into the Benton-Franklin Co. Juvenile Justice Center. She could face a hit-and-run charge since she struck another vehicle and fled from the scene.
