Md. driving lesson ends with minivan in bedroom

LANHAM, Md. (AP) — Police in Maryland say a driving lesson on Good Luck Road ended with a minivan crashing through an apartment wall.

It happened in Lanham, where apartment resident Robert Scriber's leg was hurt by flying debris. He says the minivan landed on top of a bed where he'd been lying minutes before.

Police say a man was teaching his friend to drive when the accident occurred just after 10 a.m. Monday.

Authorities say the driver was in the country illegally and didn't have a license. They say the man's friend didn't have a license either. Both are charged with reckless endangerment, and the driver has also been charged with driving without a license.
