Bellevue teen wrecks family car one week after getting license
BELLEVUE, Wash. -- A Bellevue teen is in some hot water Tuesday after wrecking the family car just one week after getting a driver's license. What's worse, the teen was breaking the law while doing so.
The teen decided to take two friends in the car for a spin when the they got into a crash and rolled over on SE 26th Street, Bellevue Police said.
Luckily, no one was hurt.
State law dictates that for the first six months after teens get their driver's license, they are not allowed to have any passengers under 20 years old aside from immediate family members.
This driver was cited for violating the probationary license restriction, police said. And the car was totaled.
"An expensive lesson," Bellevue police tweeted.
