    Youngster crashes via building in the course of motive force’s check


    Minnesota police said a teen was taking her driver’s test Wednesday when she smashed the car into a brick wall — and sent her 60-year-old examiner to the hospital, according to authorities.



    The accident in Buffalo reportedly occurred because the 17-year-old driver made the catastrophic mistake of shifting into drive instead of reverse.
    “This led to the vehicle lurching forward when she accelerated, causing the vehicle to move forward and over the curb, striking the building housing the exam station office,” police said in a press release.
    Authorities said there was significant damage to the building.
    The driver, however, was not hurt and the road test examiner is expected to recover from non-life threatening injuries.
    No charges were filed against the teen girl, but she’ll probably need more practice before her next exam.
