A rollover on North Weber Aveue in Sioux Falls shortly after midnight Sunday sent the driver to the hospital and knocked out power to thousands of residents after the car took out power poles and downed lines.

Xcel Energy estimates the damage done at $150,000.

Reports are that the vehicle is a Monte Carlo with Brookings license plates. The unidentified driver had to be extricated from the car, which had also caught fire. Officers were on patrol near Falls Park when they came across the burning vehicle. They were able to get the 15-year old driver out with only minor injuries.

It was determined that the car had been traveling north on Weber at a high rate of speed before the accident. The driver has admitted to driving his mother’s boyfriend’s car 70 miles an hour through town. Witnesses say it may have been closer to 100 mph.

The 15-year old driver was charged with first offense DWI, reckless driving, no drivers license and no seatbelt.

Power was finally restored to all customers early Sunday morning.
