An unlicensed teen could face charges after crashing into a Buellton apartment complex.

It happened shortly before 12:30 p.m. Tuesday off Highway 246 and near Highway 101.

Authorities on scene say the girl told them the brakes were not working.

She reportedly took the truck from someone without permission and crashed into the building in an effort to stop the truck.

The building inspector was called out and said damage was minimal and no one needed to be displaced.

Deputies say the teen does not have a license and will be released to her parents.

It will be up to the district attorney's office on whether any criminal charges are filed against her.
