JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

A teen crashed through the front of a Jonesboro business over the weekend while learning to drive.

According to the Jonesboro Police Department, it happened when 59-year-old Ross Burton was teaching an 18-year-old woman how to drive Sunday evening.

The incident report states that the teen was practicing how to park when she accidentally stepped on the gas instead of the brakes.

That’s when the vehicle, a 2005 Toyota Tundra, crashed through the front of Bedding Mart on Red Wolf Boulevard.

The crash took out five windows but none of the mattresses were reportedly damaged.

No injuries were reported.
