Teen Flips Car During Driving Test, Hits Five Vehicles

By  | 

A 16-year-old boy had a seizure during his driving test, causing him to hit five vehicles, flip his Jeep, and wreck the front of a store. The license examiner was hospitalized, and the teenager was treated and released.

The teen on Monday drove the 2004 black Jeep Cherokee above speed limits, hit four cars and rolled over before going airborne and crashing into another car, which was pushed through the window of a rug store.

The driver's license examiner, Gregory Desmet, 59, of Macomb County's Shelby Township was hospitalized with a broken arm. The teen and other drivers were released after receiving treatment at a hospital.

The teen's name wasn't released by Dearborn Police, who told The Detroit News they likely won't charge the boy because the erratic driving was caused by a seizure.
