The crash happened just before 11 a.m. as a 46-year-old Waterbury woman was taking her driver's test, the Republican-American reported, citing state police. The woman accidentally pressed her foot down on the accelerator instead of the brake as she was backing a car marked "student driver" into a parking spot outside the DMV, according to WVIT.

Photos posted to social media showed glass strewn across the tiles of the Waterbury DMV.

Police told the Republican-American two people who were inside the DMV at the time of the crash suffered minor injuries. One was taken to a hospital for treatment, according to the newspaper. The woman taking the test was not injured.

The driver was cited for unsafe backing, the Republican-American reported.

Officials with the DMV told WVIT that services were not disrupted by the crash.
