US woman crashes into test centre
Surveillance camera footage of test centre crash in Florida

An 80-year-old woman has crashed her car into a driving test centre in Florida, after being summoned to retake a road safety examination.

Therese Smith smashed into the office's waiting room, injuring 11 people.

It is thought she was moving out of her parking space but accelerated too hard, propelling her through an outside wall.

The accident was caught on surveillance camera and shows people rushing up to Ms Smith who was still buckled in her seat belt. No-one was seriously hurt.
