Student driver learns difficult, pricey lesson

Car sustains thousands in damage after miscue on pedals

An adult learning to drive likely got a shock when punching the gas pedal instead of the brake.

Despite being under the guidance of a professional instructor, the student miscalculated a turn at Henderson Road and Murdoch Crescent.

The vehicle hit a tree, causing several thousand dollars in damage to the vehicle. The only injury was the driver’s sore nose.
