SPRINGFIELD, Ore. — A student driver crashed into an Oregon church after stepping on a minivan’s accelerator instead of the brake.
Springfield police say the 20-year-old woman was practicing Sunday night in the parking lot of the Springfield Faith Center when she crashed through a wall, causing an estimated $100,000 in damage.
Neither she nor the driving instructor was injured.
The Register-Guard reports (https://is.gd/Hd2F1R ) it was the women’s second time behind the wheel.
Authorities say gasoline poured from the car, prompting a call to a hazardous-materials team.
