Teen driver plows into a large rock garden
The Benton County Sheriff’s Department reports a car full of teens plowed off a road and into a large “rock garden” Monday night.
The BCSO says the crash occurred on Clearview Loop, which is about two miles west from the intersection of Badger Road and I-82.
According to Deputies, the teen driver was using their cellphone and got distracted, and drove off the road into the garden. Fortunately, no reports of injuries, but it’s likely the vehicle is not going to be in good shape after plowing into large rocks.
