WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - A driving lesson goes awry in West Palm Beach when a car lands in someone's front lawn. It all happened at around 3 p.m. Sunday on Garden Avenue.

The driver says it was a gas pedal brake mix up. A young woman in the passenger's seat was teaching her mother how to drive, but the training didn't go as planned.

Instead of the brake, mom hit the gas. They went barreling through a stop sign sending the car through the fence. The car stopped on its side at a palm tree. "I was telling her to stop, but she didn't know which one to press. I knew from there on we were going to hit something. I just hoped no one would get hurt," said Grether Morales.

Luckily, the mom and daughter only received some bumps and cuts.

No word yet on whether mom will get a ticket.
