Vehicle malfunctions and crashes into Minnesota insurance office

Both the driver of a vehicle and a man working at an insurance office avoided serious injury last week when the vehicle crashed through the insurance office. The accident is thought to be caused by a defect in the vehicle.

The vehicle was driven by a disabled veteran who used hand controls instead of gas pedals to brake and accelerate. The hand controls malfunctioned and caused the man to crash through the window of an insurance office. The man working at the insurance office happened to be away from his desk at the time of the accident and was not injured. The driver of the vehicle suffered a minor leg injury.

Police officers are investigating the accident and what caused the vehicle to malfunction. Officers have stated that the driver made every effort to avoid the collission and will not be cited for the accident.
