A teenager’s driving test in Buffalo, Minnesota on Wednesday has gone miserably wrong from the get-go when she crashed the car through the driver’s examination station before she even got on the road.
The 17-year-old crashed a 2014 Chevy Equinox into the building. The accident happened due to the teenager’s miscalculation, putting the Equinox in drive instead of reverse at the start of the test.
The police added: “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.”
The authorities also said that the accident resulted in “significant damage to the vehicle and the building.”
The teenaged driver, whose identity was not released by the authorities because she’s a minor, was unhurt from the accident. A 60-year-old woman working as the license examiner, however, sustained non-critical injuries.
The vehicle used in the driving test proved to be one of the biggest casualties of the disastrous exam as it was significantly damaged.
Thankfully, no one was inside the office at the time of the crash. The teen driver will not be charged.
It remains unclear, however, if the teen or her parents will be asked to shoulder the expenses that will be needed to repair the damage to the vehicle and the office sustained during the accident.
It is also not clear yet how the accident will impact on the teenager’s driving license, or if she would simply be asked to retake the exam.
