VERNAL, Utah — Charges are pending against a juvenile who crashed a car into an apartment in Vernal and then abandoned the vehicle.

According to the Vernal Police Department, officers were dispatched to the Silver Pines apartments at 860 South Vernal Avenue around 7:15 a.m. Saturday.

Police say a vehicle crossed the sidewalk and a small section of grass before crashing into the apartment building and causing extensive damage. The apartment in question was empty at the time of the crash.

Evidence at the scene led officers to the suspect vehicle, which was unoccupied and appeared to have sustained extensive front-end damage. Another unoccupied vehicle located near the suspect vehicle was also damaged.

Later Saturday police said they located the juvenile female who was driving the car and will refer her to a juvenile court, where charges are pending.
