87 year old crashes through driving facility at end of road test

From driver crashes into license facility (story by Michelle Groenke):

An 87-year-old man who was taking his driving exam in order to renew his license crashed his vehicle Wednesday into a wall at the front of the Secretary of State’s driver’s license facility in Deerfield.

No one was injured, Deerfield police said.

“It happened around lunch time,” according to Secretary of State spokesman Dave Druker. “There is some damage to the building, but they’ll have it repaired immediately.”

Druker said it appears the man, who was in the car with an examiner, stepped on the accelerator instead of the brake, striking a post and several signs. It appears the examiner helped steer the vehicle away from the building, according to Druker.
