Getting your driver’s license is already a nerve-racking affair when you’re a teenager. These teens put unnecessary pressure on themselves to pass on their first try because: a) you don’t want to deal with the same stress all over again sometime down the road and b) they don’t want to go back to their friends and get roasted because they failed.
All you need to do to get your license is come across as a passable driver who follows the rules of the road and exhibits proper techniques. In a matter of seconds, all of that went through, er, out the window when a 17-year-old crashed her vehicle into the nearby examination station in Buffalo, Minnesota, according to the Star Tribune. At around 2 p.m., the Monticello native attempted to pull out of her parking spot, and instead of putting the 2014 Chevy Equinox in reverse, she had it in drive.
Her journey to getting a driver’s license ended before it even started when the car jumped the curb and went through the station. Her 60-year-old examiner was taken to the hospital for minor injuries. No one was in the station at the time of the incident. No charges will be filed. The embarrassment of this story is punishment enough.
