Nampa, ID (KIVI) -- Nampa Police say a young driver is lucky to be alive, and one look at these photos will tell you why.
Authorities say the teen driver was traveling too fast and drove into a fence. The pickup truck was ultimately impaled by a metal pole through the windshield and driver's side door.
Luckily, the driver only suffered minor injuries.
The Nampa Police Department shared the photos on social media along with a message to Treasure Valley parents, urging them to talk with their driving-aged children about the major responsibility that comes along with getting behind the wheel.
