WEST VALLEY CITY (AP) -- A 92-year-old woman who wanted to take a written driving test crashed her vehicle into a Utah Department of Public Safety building, police said.

Shortly before 10 a.m. Wednesday, the woman drove to a Utah Driver License Division office in West Valley City, police Capt. Craig Black said.

"When she was going to park the car, apparently she must have mistaken the gas for the brake and drove into the building," Black said.

The woman was going to study for a written test, Black said. No one was injured in the accident.
