Woman Runs Stop Sign, Crashes During Driving Test

(AP) A Maine woman who was getting her driver's license recertified will have to try again after running a stop sign and crashing into another vehicle during her road test.

Officials said the woman was driving a car with a Maine Department of Motor Vehicle inspector in the passenger seat Monday morning when she failed to stop at a stop sign at an intersection and crashed into the side of an SUV.

Officer Howard Daken said he was unsure of the disposition of the woman's license. Damage to the two vehicles topped $8,000 and the vehicle the woman was driving had to be towed.
