Student Driver’s First Lesson is a Literal Smash Hit
Some new drivers pass their road tests with flying colours. Others fail with flying glass. One October morning last year in Bellevue, Wash., a young woman was headed to her final in-car exam. When she arrived at the driving school, she got behind the wheel and attempted to park. Unfortunately, she missed the brake pedal, accidentally slamming on the accelerator instead. The vehicle careened through the front of the building, smashing its plate-glass facade and the rear window of the woman’s Audi, too. Thankfully, there were no injuries—except to the student’s pride.
