Well, it looks like a teenage driver in Minnesota will have to wait a little longer before she gets her license. 

Police in the town of Buffalo said they responded to a crash Wednesday where a sport-utility vehicle smashed into a building.

Pictures show the vehicle's front-end crashed into the driver's exam station office, destroying brick and shattering glass onto the sidewalk.

The driver was a 17-year-old girl that was in the process of taking her road test at the driver's license exam station.

Police said she inadvertently put the vehicle in drive instead of reverse, causing the SUV to go forward and hitting the building.

The license examiner, a 60-year-old woman, had to be transported by ambulance to a local hospital with injuries that were not considered life threatening.

The 17-year-old driver was not injured and no one in the building was hurt. 

Police said no charges will be filed.
