NAMPA, Idaho -- Nampa Police say a 15-year-old girl, without a driver's license or a learner's permit, lost control of the car she was driving and drove through a gas station window in Nampa Monday night.

The accident happened around 7:45 p.m. at the Chevron on the corner of East Greenhurst Road and Southside Boulevard.

Police say the teenage driver had a male acquaintance in his early 20s in the car with her at the time of the crash.  It is unclear whose car it is, but we are told it belonged to another acquaintance who did not give the girl permission to drive it.

The driver suffered minor injuries and was transported to a local hospital.  Police say she is charged with failure to purchase a driver's license and inattentive driving.

Five people sitting inside the store were hurt; four were treated on the scene and one woman was taken to the hospital. Another man arrived at Mercy Medical Center a while later complaining of injuries.

Authorities estimate the crash caused $25,000 in damages to the store. 

Police say alcohol was not a factor in the crash.
