W. Tennessee woman backs car into driver's license station

JACKSON, Tenn. (AP) -- A Brownsville woman hoping to get her driver's license reinstated on Tuesday accidentally backed her car into a Jackson driver's license station.

Highway Patrol spokesman Mike Browning says 27-year-old Sheree Covington had her license suspended because of unpaid tickets.

She went to get reinstated on Tuesday and was going to take a driving test. Before an instructor was ready for her, she attempted to move her car and backed into the front entrance of the station.

The dollar amount of the damage hasn't yet been determined.

Covington was cited for driving without a license, not having registration and failing to exercise due care. She did not go on to have her license reinstated.
