PORTAGE, Ind. — A young woman's goal of getting her driver's license crashed this week — right into the license branch. The 20-year-old woman was pulling into a parking spot outside the license branch when she hit the accelerator instead of the brake, Assistant Fire Chief Mike Bucy said.

The car jumped a small curb and went into the building about 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, tearing out a large glass window and damaging a door and low brick wall.
Neither the driver nor the examiner, neither of whom was identified, was injured. Bucy said a person in the building sustained a hip injury and was examined by emergency medical personnel but declined to be taken to the hospital.
The driver's car had damage to its hood and fenders.
Amazing Travel manager Susan Williams said she thought something had exploded next door.
"We jumped up and we went to the door and saw the car half in and half out of the license bureau," Williams said.
The building was closed for the remainder of the day but reopened Wednesday.
The young driver, meanwhile, failed the test.
"I think it's fair to say the customer did not meet the required criteria," said Greg Cook, a Bureau of Motor Vehicles spokesman.
