OKLAHOMA CITY -- A teenage driver loses control of his truck and crashes into an Oklahoma City home.

According to police, three teenagers took a six-month-old toddler on a joyride near S.W. 59th Street and Blackwelder Tuesday afternoon. The joyride ended with a crash into a home located at 1116 S.W. 57th Street.

Neighbor Ola Richardson says the truck was doing donuts in the church parking lot when the truck ran into the house. The house belongs to the church pastor.

"I guess they lost control of the car right out here, and it went straight into the house," she said.

Richardson says the teenage boys scattered after the accident, one was carrying the six-month-old child. Police caught all three, and say the child appeared to be okay.

According to police, the 16-year-old driver is not licensed to drive, and could face several charges.

No injuries are reported and luckily nobody was home at the time of the crash.
