Canadian County Sheriff's deputies say a trio of troublemakers stole a pickup truck, sped away from law enforcement and crashed into a fast food restaurant in Yukon.

Two girls and one boy walked away from the Fort Reno Adolescent Center in El Reno Sunday night. Just after midnight Monday, a deputy spotted the three in a stolen truck. The deputy tried to pull over the vehicle, but the driver refused to stop. A pursuit began.

Within minutes, the juvenile driver lost control of the truck near N. 1st Street and Main in Yukon. The truck hit a power pole then slammed into the front of a McDonald's, knocking a large hole in the wall.

The fallen power pole started a small grass fire, but Yukon firefighters quickly doused the flames. No one in the restaurant was hurt.

All three teens were taken to OU Medical Center with minor injuries, but they're expected to be all right.

The McDonald's is open for business, despite the damage.
