Woman crashes into DMV office after being asked to re-take driving test

An 80-year-old woman was caught on camera skipping one crucial step; she drove her 1990 Mercury right through the wall of the Deerfield Beach, Florida, DMV office, smashing into the waiting room and injuring 11 people.

The camera shows people rushing up to the woman, Therese Smith of Boca Raton, who was still buckled in with her seat belt. Inexplicably, a man in a Superman costume could be seen walking around the car, but he did not stop to help the driver or any of the victims.

None of the people waiting in line were seriously hurt.

Smith had been summoned to the office to re-take a driving examination, and was leaving the office at the time of the accident. She had been unable to take the test because of a mechanical problem with her car, but her license remained valid. Investigators say she apparently stepped on the gas as she was easing out of a parking space, causing her to smash through the window. She was charged by the Broward Sheriff's Office with careless driving.
