Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers say a 14-year-old boy flipped his mom's car on an Oklahoma City interstate early Tuesday morning.

OHP confirms it happened around 1:00 a.m. when the underage driver attempted to take a curve on Interstate 44 between Northwest Expressway and Penn. When the teen lost control of the car, he hit a curb and struck a guardrail.

The vehicle flipped. The teen was hurt, but not seriously. Troopers say a female passenger was ejected from the car during the crash. She suffered only road-rash injuries to her face.

No other vehicles were involved in the rollover accident.

It's not clear if the teen will be facing any charges or citations in this accident.
