Police: Iowa teen injured after car flips doing doughnuts in parking lot

Posted: Updated:

DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) -- Iowa police say a teenager has been injured after flipping his vehicle while doing "doughnuts" in a high school parking lot.

The Dubuque Telegraph Herald reports the 16-year-old was cited with reckless driving after the Sunday crash at Hempstead High School. He had two passengers in the vehicle who weren't injured.

The teen tells police he would drive about 20 to 25 mph and turn the wheel to spin the car. He told officers he drove too fast on his third attempt and flipped the vehicle.

Police say the boy injured his hand.

The Associated Press doesn't typically name juveniles accused of crimes.
