An Australian teenager ended his driving exam in disastrous manner, when he drove into his mother.

The kid confused the gas pedal for the brake in his Toyota Hilux pickup truck and careened into his mother, who was sitting in front of the motor vehicle registry. The mother was pinned against the wall and thankfully survived after being rushed to the hospital, albeit with severe leg injuries.

It’s not known whether the driving examiner was also injured, but he won’t be passing the 17-year old.
