OKLAHOMA CITY, OK- Next time you have a designated driver, make sure the person is actually old enough to get behind the wheel! Police say a 12-year-old is responsible for crashing a truck through a fence and into a gas meter.

Authorities say the young boy took the wheel after a family friend was too drunk to drive. The drunk lady was arrested. Lucky for both of them, no one was injured, in what could have ended much worse.

Now, the pre-teen is left learning a huge lesson about drinking and driving, without ever taking a sip!
