Minnesota teen taking driver's exam crashes into test office

Posted: Updated:

(ABC NEWS) -- A Minnesota teen's driving exam came to a crashing halt last week as she plowed into the testing office.

The 17-year-old accidentally had the car in drive instead of reverse as she was trying to back out of a parking spot in front of the test location in Buffalo, Minnesota, last Wednesday.

The result -- besides a failed exam -- left the nose of the silver SUV in the front of the building.

"The impact caused significant damage to the vehicle and building," Buffalo police said.

According to police, the teen was in the process of taking her road test at the driver's license exam station located there when she inadvertently put the vehicle in 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.

The impact caused significant damage to the vehicle and building.

The license examiner, a 60 year old female from Buffalo, MN, was transported by ambulance to the Buffalo Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The 17-year-old driver was not injured and no one in the building was injured. No charges are pending.
