IDAHO FALLS (KTVB) -- A 12-year-old southeastern Idaho boy police say took a sport utility vehicle without the owner's consent and crashed might have ended up in a spot with improved chances of forgiveness.

Police say the boy avoided injury after losing control of the 2000 GMC Yukon and crashing through the outer wall of New Life Church in Idaho Falls at about 3 a.m. Tuesday.

The vehicle came to rest on the edge of a large stage inside the church.

Signs inside the church advertising a series of sermons titled "Signs of the Times" were knocked down in the crash.

There were no injuries, and authorities didn't provide damage estimates.
