Seattle, WA—A teenager was arrested after he drove a SUV through Shorecrest High School, 75-feet down the hallway and into a security office. The 17-year-old teenager crashed through the high school around 10:00 p.m., in King County, as reported by The Seattle Times.

The King County Sheriff’s Office reported that the teen drove a 2002 Subaru Outback through the doors of Shorecrest High School, down the hall about 75-feet and crashed into a security office. Police located the teen about an hour and half later on the school property after running the tags on the car, and discovered that the car belonged to the boy’s parents. The SUV was reportedly found with broken walls on top of the vehicle. The boy was arrested by police officers an then taken to Harborview Medical Center “for a medical evaluation.” Drugs and/or alcohol do not appear to be factors. Thankfully, there was no structural damage to the building, nor any reported injuries. The car had to be pushed back down the hallway of the school to get the car out of the building; the teen’s parents later retrieved it. A full investigation is underway. It was not reported what the boy was charged with.
