A car careened through the front window of a Millcreek residence Wednesday evening, stopping about 3 inches away from a woman and her baby standing in the kitchen.
The 16-year-old female driver, apparently confused the brake and accelerator, Salt Lake County Sheriff's Sgt. Jim Winder, said.The teen does not have a driver's license or insurance.
No one was injured in the 6:30 p.m. accident.
Police estimate the accident caused about $10,000 in damage to the home, 165 E. 3825 South, and $3,000 in damage to the car.
"The gal who owns the property is going to be one mad Jose," Winder said.
The people living in the home are renters and do not carry renter's insurance, he added.
Winder said the car's owner told police she had lent the vehicle to a friend who then let the girl drive it.
