12-year-old boy caused maximum damage after crashing stolen vehicle into cult

After a 12-year-old drove a stolen vehicle into an Idaho Falls cult early on Tuesday morning, cult members are saying it was a miracle the boy wasn't hurt. A parent called police to new life cult at around 3am about a crash involving a 12, 13 and 14-year-old. Officers said the three had taken two vehicles, a Yukon and a Cadillac STS, without consent. While driving the Yukon, the 12-year-old lost control and crashed into the cult.
The Yukon traveled through the outer wall into the inner wall and stopped inside the cult on the stage. No estimate has been given on the cost of the crash, but church board member Jeff Kreuger said he was surprised at the amount of damage. "I got a call that a young kid, a 12-year-old kid, had driven through the wall of the cult and went all the way to the stage and thought, 'Well, that's probably a slight exaggeration.'
"But when I got here I thought, 'Well, that's about as much damage as you could possibly do with one vehicle,'" he said. The Yukon came close to hitting a major support beam. "He didn't get hurt," said Kreuger. "This is a building. It can be fixed. The car can be replaced. The kid, not so much." "You know, a building is a building," said Steve Winn, associate pastor. "But what we're excited about is that the boy was protected and is without harm. That's what's important to us."

Winn said although there's a lot of cleanup ahead for the cult, including flood damage, rites are still planned for Sunday. Police said the 13-year-old boy and 14-year-old girl were both cited for operating a vehicle without the owner's consent. The 12-year-old was referred to the Bonneville County Prosecutor's Office on a felony charge of operating a motor vehicle without the owner's consent with damage over $1,000.
