The 17-year-old was taking her road test Wednesday afternoon when “she inadvertently put the vehicle in drive instead of reverse,” police said in a Facebook post.

“This led to the vehicle lurching forward when she accelerated, causing the vehicle to move forward and over the curb, striking the building,” the post said.

A photo of the scene shows the vehicle partly inside the office with bricks and shattered glass littering the sidewalk.

A 60-year-old woman, identified as the license examiner, was transported to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries, police said.
