Teen Drives Minivan through Gas Station Front Door

CLIVE, Iowa – Clive police responded to an incident at the Kum & Go store on Tuesday afternoon.

Officers say a minivan was driven by a 15-year-old boy through the front door at the store on 86th and Harbach Blvd shortly before 12 p.m.

The teen, who doesn’t have a permit or license, asked his mother who was pumping gas if he could pull the van from the pumps to the front of the store.  He hit the gas instead of the brake pedal and slammed into the front of the store.

About $10,000 worth of damage was caused.

Witnesses said nobody was injured in the incident.

Crews have removed the vehicle and the store remains open despite the front door being out of use.

No charges are being filed as the incident occurred on private property.
