Teen Mom completely totaled her car, one day after buying it

She had just purchased the vehicle the day before.

McKee said the crash wasn't her fault, either, and instead blamed her diabetes.

According to TMZ, sources say the reality TV star was driving on an Oklahoma highway, "with sky high blood sugar… when she zoned out and suddenly swerved off the road."

The 2015 Kia Sportage was totaled, but luckily, the airbags all did their jobs, and she was not hurt. McKee's other two children were not in the car at the time of the crash.

Here's the kicker, though. The young mother hadn't yet worked out insurance, so she is on the hook for the entire car's worth. All $26K. She got a ticket for not having insurance at the time and claimed she was going to call them on Monday.

Well, here's a life lesson for everyone: If you buy a new car, don't wait to get your insurance. At least McKee is OK, though!

Check out all the crash photos over at TMZ.
