SASKATOON -- An unlicensed teen driver was caught speeding through a school zone with a child inside the car, according to police.

The driver, who is 16 years old, had a nine-year-old passenger, according to a tweet from the Saskatoon Police Service (SPS) traffic unit.

The driver also was found to be lying to an officer during the stop, police said.
