According to a Bedford Police report, the 14-year-old driver was intoxicated and refused to cooperate with police.

When police arrived they found an intoxicated 14-year-old girl had been driving the vehicle.

The girl and her passenger, 18-year-old Mariah Smith, also of Bedford, were not injured. The vehicle was registered to Jamie Funk, of Ted Jones Drive.

The 14-year-old would not cooperate with police, so it is unclear why she was driving or how the accident happened.
