NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. (AP) -- Police say a woman taking a driving test ended up pinning a bystander after losing control of the car on a snowy Westchester County road. New Rochelle police said the 23-year-old driver rounded a corner Wednesday morning, lost traction and trapped a man cleaning snow off his car. Lt. George Marshall says the examiner tried to use the test car's secondary set of brakes, but they failed.
The 33-year-old bystander has been taken to a hospital with leg and shoulder pain.
Investigators are trying to determine whether the accident was due to equipment failure, the driver's inexperience, speed or the snow. Marshall says no citations have been issued.
It's unclear whether she will have to retake the test.
