New driver slams into the DMV

Okay, one last video to take you into the weekend.

This poor man makes me feel a lot better about my driving (or lack thereof) skills.

Just minutes after passing his first driving test, the newly-anointed legal driver smashed straight into the DMV -- with the instructor still in the car.

"He thought he had it in park but he didn't," Collier police Sgt. Brian Halbleib told the Pittsburgh Post Gazette, and the car jumped the curb when he took his foot off the brake. "He panicked and hit the accelerator, and went through the front."

Four people were treated for minor injuries. The Post-Gazette reports the driver did not pass his test.
