NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WAVY) – A driver accidentally crashed her car into a Newport News Public Schools building Monday afternoon.

The 75-year-old woman was parked outside the  administration building on Warwick Boulevard, when police say she pressed the gas instead of the brake. Her SUV hit the front of the building so hard, it ended up inside the structure.

A worker was injured. He was taken to the hospital, but police say his leg injury was reported as minor.

Police do not plan on filing charges.
