BATON ROUGE - Officials responded to a bizarre hit-and-run crash Tuesday afternoon on Burbank Drive. WBRZ learned that the driver of the vehicle was a teen without a license.

The incident was reported Tuesday around 2:30 p.m. on Burbank near Seaboard.

According to Louisiana State Police, the 16-year-old driver of the vehicle ran off the roadway and struck a pedestrian and several other vehicles in the parking lot. The driver then fled the scene, police say.

Video from a neighboring business shows the car striking a man beneath the building's overhang and taking out a brick support beam. Sources tell WBRZ the person struck was transported from the scene with minor injuries.

LSP says the teen was ticketed for hit and run driving, careless operation, and no driver's license.
