1 Overcrowded DMV office.

It's what happened Wednesday at the motor vehicle office on Military Trail in Deerfield Beach. Boca Raton resident Therese M. Smith, 80, went in to re-take her driving exam, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. When Smith went to leave, she accidentally sent her 1990 car plowing through a glass window, right into the state office.
Eleven people were treated for injuries; Smith was not harmed but was charged with careless driving.
As for her driving exam: It was postponed because Smith's passenger-side door was broken and the test-giver couldn't get inside.
