Person Taking Driving Test Crashes Into Waterbury DMV

A woman crashed into the Department of Motor Vehicles in Waterbury while taking a driving test Tuesday. 

Officials from the DMV said the 46-year-old, who has a permit, was taking a driving test when she backed into a parking spot, sped up instead of braking and crashed through windows of the building facing the parking area. 

Two customers inside the building reported minor injuries and one was taken to the hospital for treatment.  

The driver and the DMV inspector who was administering the test were not injured. The driver was issued an infraction for unsafe backing.

The landlord for the property closed up the window and addressed building damage. 

DMV services were not interrupted, according to the DMV.
