A teenager in Buffalo, Minn. attempting to get her drivers license on Wednesday didn’t go well when she crashed into the driver’s examination station before she even got on the road.
The 17-year-old from inadvertently put the 2014 Chevy Equinox into drive instead of reverse as the test began about 2 p.m. When she stepped on the accelerator, the vehicle lurched forward, jumped the curb and plowed through the front of the station in a strip mall, said Buffalo Police Chief Pat Budke. She was not hurt, but her vehicle suffered significant damage, the chief said.
The examiner, a 60-year-old woman from Buffalo, was taken to a local hospital with noncritical injuries.
No one inside the office was hurt and no charges will be filed, Budke said.
