An underage driver is allegedly responsible for a four-car crash that took place Friday morning in Colorado.

The initial investigation by Colorado State Patrol (CSP) found that a 13-year-old girl caused the accident in eastern Boulder County, which involved a school bus, after taking her parents' Chevy Suburban without their knowledge, according to CBS Colorado.

Four people were transported to a nearby hospital with no major injuries, though KUSA 9 reported that a 66-year-old man sustained moderate injuries.
