Driving instructor crashes into Lakewood Learn to Drive school

One person was injured when an instructor at a Lakewood Learn to Drive school crashed a gray hatchback through the center’s front window and wall, forcing people to dive out of the way, police said.

The driver was cited for a traffic violation after the crash, according to a Lakewood Police Department posting on X, the social media site formerly called Twitter.

The crash happened Tuesday morning at the Community Driving School, 2099 Wadsworth Blvd. The instructor drove the Hyundai Tucson almost entirely into the school, breaking the wall and a large plate glass window adjacent to a large Learn to Drive sign and advertisements for “Walk-in Drive Tests and Permit Tests Today!”

“Thankfully, there was only one minor injury,” police said. “Several people were able to dive out of harm’s way.”

The driver was not identified.
