DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Police say no one was seriously injured when a sport utility vehicle driven by a teenager crashed through a Des Moines storefront.

The crash happened Friday morning when an SUV driven by a 17-year-old girl went over a sidewalk and through the glass and brick front of Jim’s Appliances, smashing into appliances on display.

The girl told police that she was driving her grandmother’s vehicle. Police said the girl was stopped at an intersection in front of the store and hit the gas too hard, causing her to lose control of the SUV.

An insurance representative estimates the car caused about $20,000 worth of damage.
